Union-Snyder CAA provides a variety of Housing Assistance programs to support families and individuals living in Union and Snyder Counties. We provide case management, rental assistance, and more.

Rapid Rehousing Program (RRP)

RRP is a transitional housing program for families and individuals who meet HUD's definitions of homelessness:

  • Living in places not meant for human habitation (i.e. cars, parks, sidewalks, and abandoned buildings), or

  • Living in an emergency shelter, or

  • Living in transitional housing for people living in homelessness

The program will pay the security deposit and rent, based on percent of income, for up to one year for eligible participants in addition to providing case management, budgeting assistance, and credit repair during their enrollment. Other eligibility criteria will be discussed during the participant's intake meeting.​

*NOTE: The residence must fall within fair market rent and rent reasonableness for family/individual's respective county.
