The Office of Block Grant Assistance (OBGA) hosted a webinar to review the Recovery Housing Program (RHP) Federal Register Notice (FR-6225-N-01). This pilot program will provide stable, temporary housing to individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder. Understanding the Notice is a crucial step for grantees to design a successful program.

The Notice limits RHP eligible activities to: public facilities and improvements; acquisition and disposition of real property; payment of lease, rent, and utilities; rehabilitation and reconstruction of both single family, multifamily, and public housing; new construction; clearance and demolition; relocation; administration; and technical assistance. The Notice also encourages coordination with other federal substance abuse-related assisted partners.

The presentation discussed key points of the Notice, including:

  • The RHP Action Plan and application (separate from the Consolidated Plan)
  • Options to award funds to any entitlement and non-entitlement units of general local government, Indian tribes, or tribally designated housing entities
  • The option for state grantees to directly carry out activities or award funds to nonprofit subrecipients

Training Objectives

Participants were able to:

  • Describe the general requirements in the RHP Notice, including the program purpose, national objectives, and eligible uses of funds
  • Begin evaluating options for how they will design their program

Who Should Attend?

This webinar was intended for RHP grantees and partners.
