Emergency Housing

Emergency Housing Choice Vouchers
The Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) program is available through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). 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. 
As of 3.13.23, the Housing Authorities in the State of Georgia have Emergency Housing Choice Vouchers. To locate Housing Authorities in other states use the link above.
