Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing (HPRP)
HPRP is a City of Albany collaborative funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Federal "stimulus" funds) that has added additional financial and case management resources targeting low-income City of Albany residents facing eviction. HPRP helps households who, but for this assistance, would become homeless.
