The Recovery Housing Program (RHP) provides funding for states and the District of Columbia to provide stable, transitional housing for individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder. The funding covers a period of not more than two years or until the individual secures permanent housing, whichever is earlier.
RHP was authorized under Section 8071 of the Support for Patients and Communities (SUPPORT) Act. HUD published its formula in the Federal Register on April 17, 2019 (84 FR 16027), identifying the 25 eligible grantees and allocation percentages.
RHP eligible activities include:
- Public facilities and improvements
- Acquisition and disposition of real property
- Payment of lease, rent, and utilities
- Rehabilitation, reconstruction, and construction of both single family, multifamily, and public housing
- Clearance and demolition
- Administration and technical assistance
The RHP Notice encourages coordination with other federal partners addressing substance-abuse related programs.
