Recipients and subrecipients must be able to make available both components–TH and PH-RRH–to all program participants entering the project. This does not mean that all program participants will receive assistance through both portions of the project.
HUD expects Joint TH and PH-RRH projects to be client-driven and the assistance to be tailored to the program participants' needs. This means that a program participant may choose to receive assistance through only one portion of the project, but they must have had the option to receive the assistance through the other. This also means that recipients or subrecipients should not provide assistance beyond what is needed to help program participants safely and stably exit homelessness. For example, recipients should not have a policy in place to provide all program participants with 12 months of rental assistance in the RRH portion of the project, but instead should determine the least amount necessary to help the program participant safely and stably exit homelessness, which will vary by person.
