NAEH Brief: Prevention Targeting 101
Since the implementation of the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) began in 2009, communities have been working to find the best possible way to use prevention funds. Figuring out how to target this limited resource is an important part of this and other homeless assistance grants. The National Alliance to End Homelessness has released a new brief entitled "Prevention Targeting 101" that sheds light on how communities can use local data to reach and preserve the housing situations of the households most at risk of homelessness. Techniques for evaluating success in prevention targeting efforts are also discussed.
