Federal Funding Tool for Addressing Homelessness in Rural Communities

May 27, 2019

This tool is intended to provide an easy way for rural communities to identify a wide array of federal programs and resources that can support their work to prevent and end homelessness.

It was developed by an interagency working group of federal partners focused on better aligning homelessness response efforts in support of rural communities.

The tool is designed to help communities answer the following questions:

  1. For which federal resources is my state/CoC/tribe/organization/education agency/etc. eligible?
  2. Which federal resources can be used to pay for ______ (ex. capital costs, transportation, supportive services, rental assistance, etc.)?

The tool is intended to be broad to make it useful to a wide array of community stakeholders.
