Emergency Housing Vouchers

[19 July 2021] The Rochester Housing Authority (RHA) will begin administering Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHV) effective 7/19/21. For an Individual/Family to be eligible to receive an EHV, at least one (1) of the following criteria must be met:

  • Individual/Family must meet HUD’s definition of homeless
  • Individual/Family must meet HUD’s definition of at risk of homelessness
  • Individual/Family must fit HUD’s definition of fleeing domestic violence/trafficking
  • Individual/Family must meet HUD’s definition of recently homeless, and in need of EHV to maintain housing stability

EHV’s are managed through a direct referral process. All referrals for an EHV must come directly from Partners Ending Homelessness (Monroe County Continuum of Care), through the community’s Coordinated Entry System. If you believe you may be eligible for EHV assistance, please complete the Pre-Qualification survey by using the link provided with this posting. After you have completed the Pre-Qualification, you will be contacted by Partners Ending Homelessness.

If you are currently on one of RHA’s waiting lists and believe you qualify for one of the above preferences, you can also apply for an Emergency Housing Voucher by completing the PreQualification survey using [THIS] link.
