What is Rapid Re-Housing?
Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) is an intervention designed to help individuals and families exit homelessness and return to permanent housing. Rapid Re-Housing provides short-term rental assistance and voluntary supportive services, without any preconditions or requirements (such as employment, income, absence of criminal record, or sobriety). The services provided are tailored to the person’s needs. In King County, Rapid Re-Housing providers partner with Housing Connector. Learn more in the guidelines.
