Please refer to this guide.INTERVENTIONSPrevention: is the
practice of providing short to medium-term supportive services and rent
assistance to households at-risk or at imminent risk of homelessness.
Prevention connects people with the care and support needed to maintain their
housing and achieve a better quality of life. All prevention programs will
provide targeted prevention, an approach where households are strategically
prioritized to receive homeless prevention assistance based on a standardized,
evidence-based assessment that identifies households who are at highest risk of
becoming homeless. Successful targeted prevention reduces the number of households
who actually become homeless. The length of assistance 4-6 months on average,
but can extend to 24 months. Source: HUD Performance TrainingOutreach:

unsheltered homeless individuals and families, connecting them with emergency

special populations. Source: ESG Requirements
