The Re-entry Partnership Housing (RPH) Program helps provide housing for individuals under supervision of the Department of Community Supervision (DCS) and have no valid residence, including individuals authorized for release by the Parole Board, on probation and referred by Accountability Court.
This program involves a unique collaboration between several different agencies. The funding for this program is made available via State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) funds supplied by the Department of Community Supervision (DCS). The State Housing Trust Fund for the homeless (HTF) is the administrative agent for this program. The HTF is administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA).
RPH can assist the individuals released and under the supervision with Supportive Housing including food and supportive services provided through Certified Housing Providers from 3 to 6 months. The program is intended to provide a start for the Returning Citizens to link with community resources and attain self-sufficiency.
The program is collaborating with local Re-entry program initiatives to help the Returning Citizens for community rehabilitation.
