This fact sheet highlights the parts of the CoC Program interim rule most relevant to safe haven projects. The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act) amended the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. Among other changes, the HEARTH Act repealed the “Safe Havens for Homeless Individuals Demonstration Program.” This means that HUD will not fund any new safe haven projects under the CoC Program. However, HUD will continue to renew funding for an existing safe haven project as long as they meet certain requirements highlighted in the fact sheet.
