The week of August 29, 2011, the Alliance concluded a two-part series of webinars on rapid re-housing. These interactive webinars allowed participants to ask questions and respond to polls given by the presenters.

The first part of the series (RRH 1) covered the basics of rapid re-housing, including the definition, tips on working with landlords, and a discussion of housing barriers; the second part (RRH 2) focused on rapid re-housing program design and implementation and included a discussion of program budgeting, staffing, and available funding sources.

Both PowerPoint presentations are available below.

    • Assistance is short- to medium-term (not exceeding two years)
      Have to make decisions based on deep vs. shallow, maximum subsidy allowed, etc.
      Don’t count on a permanent subsidy
      Money: Subsidy Design
    • Income-Based Subsidies
      INCOME BASED
      Jane makes $400/month
      She pays 40% of her salary ($160) towards rent. The percentage remains the same no matter what.
      If income increases, subsidy decreases.
      CONS:
      Disincentive to work Potential cliff effect
    • Flat Subsidies
      FLAT SUBSIDY
      Peter makes $500 a month. His rent is $650 a month; he pays $250 of this. He will pay the same amount ($250) regardless of fluctuations in income.
      If income increases, subsidy remains the same.
      CONS:
      Lack of flexibility; may have to be readjusted
    • Declining Subsidies
      DECLINING SUBSIDY
      Phil and Tanya start by paying $300 a month. After three months, they pay $350. Every three months their subsidy declines until they are able to assume their full rent.
      Regardless of income, subsidy will decrease over time.
      CONS:
      Not as flexible if things don’t go as planned (like income-based)
