Santa Clara County Office of Supportive Housing
The Santa Clara County Office of Supportive Housing proposed to evaluate its rapid rehousing program, focusing on single adults without children. The County’s rapid rehousing program aims to quickly move homeless individuals into permanent housing by providing housing search assistance, temporary rental assistance including move-in costs and deposits, and other supportive services for 12-24 months to quickly move homeless individuals into permanent housing. Santa Clara County plans to use its coordinated referral system and vulnerability assessment tool to identify and randomize among individuals eligible for rapid rehousing. Santa Clara County plans to measure the intervention’s impacts on homelessness, involvement with the criminal justice system, hospital admissions, employment, and utilization of public benefits.
