Must be homeless under Category 1 or Category 4 as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and have a child younger than 18 years old as part of the household. Eligibility also requires evidence of residency in San Joaquin County. Actual enrollment is also based on an assessment of need and other requirements set forth by the HEARTH Act. All adult household members must be willing and able to work toward self-sufficiency.
Continuum of Care (CoC) Rapid Re-Housing is a federally funded temporary rental assistance program (normally not exceeding twelve months) for qualified homeless families that are living in a shelter, living on the streets, or receiving one-time homeless assistance from the Human Services Agency. Families can receive rent and deposit assistance, according to documented need of the household; continuing eligibility is reviewed at least every three months. The head of household must also participate in a plan toward self-sufficiency (education, training or employment).
Households that believe they meet eligibility requirements should contact Central Valley Low-Income Housing for full details.
