Make Homelessness Rare, Brief, and One-time using HOME-ARP
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provided just under $57.8 million to Connecticut via HUD’s HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) to reduce homelessness and increase housing stability.
With nearly 2,000 individuals currently experiencing homelessness in Connecticut, HOME-ARP resources are critical to our ability to make homelessness rare, brief, and one-time.
