Homeless Assistance ProgramEdit

Homeless individuals and families can receive temporary and permanent housing financial assistance through the "Homeless Assistance Program", also known as "HAP". HAP is a federally funded housing assistance program which provides various types of housing financial assistance for:

1. Assistance with back rent owed -- to prevent homelessness.
2. Assistance with move in costs (rent, security deposits, etc.) -- to cease homelessness.
3. Case management housing assistance from 1 to 4+ months of monthly rent assistance -- to prevent homelessness.
4. Single Room Occupancy "SRO" costs -- to provide shelter and transition assistance to permanent housing.

Numerous San Francisco social service and non-profit agencies are HAP funded to provide these services (and more) to area homeless and those at risk of homelessness. The amounts of these housing assistance funds ranges in the hundreds to thousands of dollars as needed to gain and/or preserve existing housing.

A few of the organizations with HAP funding services are:

  • Department of Health and Human Services (170 Otis Street, San Francisco, CA)
  • Catholic Charities
  • Hamilton Family Resource Center


and many other city non-profits.

Immediate NeedEdit

For CalWORKS/TANF applicants with an immediate financial need (no food, clothing, utilities or other related emergencies that are detrimental to the health and safety of the family). CalWORKS/TANF can provide immediate financial assistance and process the CalWORKS/TANF grant within fifteen working days if the applicant is to be eligible. CalWORKS/TANF can also provide immediate financial resources to applicants who have received an eviction notice.

Modified Payment ProgramEdit

2010 HAP Manual TextEdit

The 2010 HAP Manual has many changes that are not currently part of SFHomeless.net. The question is whether the wiki or the manual contains the most up to date information. The most efficient way to ensure the wiki has the best information is to add the 2010 HAP Manual text into its respective wiki agency page under a new section “2010 HAP Manual”. It will then be up to future wiki users to determine whether and how to update the agency page with the new information.
