Grand Prairie Housing and Neighborhood Services Emergency Housing Voucher Program Availability
As part of the American Rescue plan 2021, Grand Prairie Housing and Neighborhood Services (GPHNS) has received funding and have been awarded a limited number of Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHV) by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department (HUD) to administer the Emergency Housing Voucher program.
Although the Housing Choice Voucher Wait List is currently closed, GPHNS Wait List participants may be eligible for an Emergency Housing Voucher if the applicant meets the following criteria:
(2) at risk of homelessness;
(3) fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking; or
(4) recently homeless and for whom providing rental assistance will prevent the family’s homelessness or having high risk of housing instability.
Applicants who meet one of the four criteria can call Metro Dallas Homeless Crisis helpline number at 1-888-411-6802.
Emergency Housing Vouchers are limited to the eligible populations listed above and are managed through a direct referral process. Emergency Housing Voucher applicants cannot self-refer.
If you are currently receiving services from any of the Continuum of Care programs or partnering service providers mentioned below, you can speak with your case manager to be assessed and referred for the Emergency Housing Voucher program.
