In accordance with Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (24 CFR) 91.220(l)(4)(i), 576, and 578, the cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, and Henderson, Clark County, and the Southern Nevada Homelessness Continuum of Care (SNH CoC) have developed the following written standards, which are applicable to all rapid rehousing (RRH) projects that receive Continuum of Care (CoC), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG), and Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) funding in Southern Nevada. These written standards are intended to set basic, minimum requirements, and grantees are permitted to build upon these expectations and establish more stringent standards applicable to their own projects, if so desired. Projects remain bound by the terms of the programs under which they are funded and nothing in these standards should be construed to relieve projects of this responsibility. In addition, all RRH projects must comply with the applicable Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) under which the project was originally awarded.
The goal of these standards is to synthesize key regulatory elements with the processes and priorities of the SNHCoC and to ensure that RRH projects are administered fairly and methodically. Note that rapid rehousing programs are subject to differing requirements, depending upon the funding source of the program, and this document attempts to clearly lay out those differences. The above-listed jurisdictions will continue to build upon and refine this document.
The current Southern Nevada Rapid Re-Housing Written Standards is available for public comment has been extended from March 25, 2020 to April 30, 2020. Please email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject, “Rapid Re-housing Written Standards.”
