North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

State Releases HPRP Info Packet

The Following was sent out by the N.C. Office of Economic Reinvestment and Investment (OERI) on June 15, 2009 

To: Local governments and non-profits interested in the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid-ReHousing Program (HPRP)

From: Martha Are, Office of Economic Recovery and Investment

Date: June 15, 2009

The N.C. Office of Economic Recovery and Investment (OERI) has established a Housing and Homelessness Prevention Work Group. One purpose of this Work Group is to facilitate the new American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Homelessness Prevention Program (HPRP).
The State has submitted a plan to HUD, outlining how the State intends to implement HPRP. HUD has set a July 2 deadline to notify the State about whether or not HUD has approved the State’s plan. Once the State’s plan has been approved, OERI will distribute a Request for Applications (RFA) related to HPRP. Since this is a new program, the Work Group wanted to get out some preliminary information describing what is known about HPRP as of today. We hope that this information will be helpful to communities as they begin planning to submit a proposal in response to the upcoming RFA.

A Question and Answer conference call related to this preliminary application package will be held at 10:00 A.M., Monday, June 22. The call in number is 888-296-6500, and the guest code is 804694. Although an RSVP is not required, it is helpful for planning purposes. Interested parties can RSVP by emailing

We appreciate your interest in this program and look forward to working with you.
