The PHA is accepting direct referrals from the Rhode Island Continuum of Care (CoC) for EHV eligible populations listed below. If an individual or family believed they may be eligible for EHV assistance they may contact the CoC via the following web forms.
EHV Eligible Population
In order to be eligible for an EHV, an individual or family must meet one of four eligibility categories:
- At risk of homelessness
- Fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking
- Recently homeless and for whom providing rental assistance will prevent the family’s homelessness or having high risk of housing instability.
