Family Homeless Prevention and Assistance Program (FHPAP)

Short-term help for low-income families, youth, and single adults who are homeless or are about to become homeless.

Description

The Family Homeless Prevention and Assistance Program (FHPAP) helps low-income families with or without children, unaccompanied youth, and single adults who are homeless or are about to become homeless.

Resources and money help with:

  • Preventing homelessness
  • Getting back into housing right away
  • Staying in housing

Assistance usually takes the form of short-term help with rent. It may also help with utility costs. Payments may help to prevent foreclosure or eviction.

Housing assistance and services may vary by region or agency. There are FHPAP programs in all Minnesota counties and six of the northern tribal nations including Red Lake, White Earth, Fond Du Lac, Bois Forte, Mille Lacs and Leech Lake.
