HPRP Eligibility and Documentation Case Scenarios

Date Published: October 2010



HPRP Case Scenario Training is a tool to increase staff accuracy in determining household eligibility for HPRP assistance and maintaining case file documentation. The training uses hypothetical applicants for HPRP Prevention or Rapid Re-Housing assistance. Staff may then use a variety of HUD resources, including the Notice, Website tools and the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to: list documentation needed to assess each household’s eligibility; answer the 3 key eligibility questions for each scenario; and list other considerations and documentation appropriate to the household’s specific situation.


The standards for determining and documenting household eligibility for assistance under the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Housing Program are described in HPRP Eligibility and Documentation Guidance.


Case Scenario materials can be used to offer staff training and practice in applying the standards to a variety of household situations. The materials can be printed and used for either self-study or group training workshops.


Note: the version of the HPRP Documentation Checklist Template – Financial Assistance & Housing Unit previously posted on the website on 3/18/2011 had a minor error related to the allowable term of assistance for motel/hotel.
