This paper explores the role of employment services in preventing homelessness and in rapidly returning homeless individuals and families to housing stability. The paper also examines the role that HUD�s new Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) can play in assisting people to achieve or sustain employment. Strategies for collaboration between the housing and employment sectors are discussed. This paper is targeted to HPRP grantees and sub-grantees � specifically, program leaders who supervise case managers and have responsibility for helping people using HPRP services to access mainstream workforce investment services. It is also a resource for local workforce investment boards, their staff, and contractors.
