Emergency Housing Vouchers

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) program is a new housing voucher program funded by the American Rescue Plan Act.1 Through EHV, HUD is providing 70,000 housing choice vouchers to local Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) in order to assist individuals and families who are:

  • Homeless,
  • At risk of homelessness,
  • Fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or
  • Were recently homeless or have a high risk of housing instability

EHV referrals must come primarily through a local CoC’s coordinated entry (CE) system or through other direct referral partners such as VSPs in limited situations.
