College-Focused Rapid Re-Housing Program Request for Proposals

The College-Focused Rapid Re-Housing Program Request for Proposals are aligned to meet the expectations of Assembly Bill 74 Rapid Re-Housing (AB 74-RRH), which will provide funding for six to eight campuses to help develop a college-focused rapid re-housing program. 

Please note: This funding is separate from the one-time funding also included in AB 74 for general campus basic needs efforts.

Goals for the funding are to:

  • Build and continue an ongoing college-focused rapid rehousing program on campus
  • Establish partnerships with at least one community-based housing provider to offer wraparound services and rental subsidies for eligible students
  • Connect students with community case managers who have knowledge of and expertise in accessing safety net resources
  • Establish ongoing emergency housing procedures, including both on- and off-campus resources
  • Provide emergency grants necessary to secure housing or prevent the imminent loss of housing
  • Conduct assessment and evaluation to track outcomes and guide program/service improvements
