Prevention Assistance


Family Homelessness Prevention and Assistance Program (FHPAP) funds is an on-going grant that Ramsey County receives through Minnesota Housing Finance Agency (MHFA) to fund four different service models within Ramsey County: street outreach, prevention assistance, homeless assistance, and rapid rehousing. FHPAP funds target single adults, youth ages 24 and younger, and/or families with minor children that are at risk of homelessness or already experiencing homelessness.

Prevention assistance can assist households with late rent and/or utility payments. Homeless Assistance is to assist households with a one-time deposit and/or 1st month's rent payment to move into new housing if the household is already homeless.  Households seeking rapid rehousing (RRH) programs must have a housing assessment via coordinated entry (CE) and be placed on the priority list for Coordinated Entry (CE).
