BHP was awarded 35 Emergency Housing Vouchers this summer from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The tenant-based rental voucher is part of the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to provide housing relief from the undue hardships the COVID-19 pandemic has brought upon individuals and families.
“This is a very rare opportunity for us to quickly provide rental assistance to a vulnerable population greatly impacted by COVID-19 as well as others in danger of becoming homeless,” said Karen Kreutzberg, MTW & Federal Policy Director. “We are grateful that all 35 vouchers have been matched to local community members and that families can begin settling into new homes.”
Through a process unique to these ARPA Emergency Housing Vouchers, our partners at the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative and Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Non-Violence provided referrals to connect community members to vouchers. Emergency Vouchers will serve families until they are no longer needed, at which time, the vouchers will sunset.
HUD awarded 70,000 housing choice vouchers through this program to local public housing authorities to assist individuals and families who are homeless, at-risk of homelessness, fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or were recently homeless or need the stability housing can bring.
