Housing and Urban Development Homeless Assistance
Who We Are
HUD serves over 1 million people through emergency, transitional, and permanent housing programs each year. The total number of peoples who experience homelessness could be twice as high. There are four federally defined categories under which individuals and families might qualify as homeless:
- Literally homeless;
- Imminent risk of homelessness;
- Homeless under other Federal statutes; and
- Fleeing/attempting to flee domestic violence.
HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) supports the nationwide commitment to ending homelessness by providing funding opportunities to nonprofit organizations and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families. Through these opportunities, SNAPS advocates self-sufficiency and promotes the effective utilization of mainstream resources available to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
