In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill would provide for temporary rental assistance for individuals who are eligible for emergency assistance and need financial assistance to stay in their own home, due to temporary conditions. Specifically, if an individual who is eligible for emergency assistance, is facing eviction due to temporary conditions, the individual can receive temporary rental assistance. Temporary rental assistance may be provided to maintain current permanent housing which had previously been affordable, but which is no longer affordable to the recipient for reasons including, but not limited to, loss of employment and temporary unemployment or underemployment, and it is anticipated that the housing will again become affordable. Additionally, temporary rental assistance may be provided when it is determined that maintaining the unit in the current housing arrangement is both the least costly alternative and serves to preserve the family structure while the search for affordable housing continues. By providing funding for eligible individuals to stay in their current residence, the State can prevent unnecessary homelessness, maintain the family unit, and be fiscally responsible.
