HUD/CPD RIN: 2506-AC33 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Rural Housing Stability Program (FR-5573) 

This rule provides for the regulations for Rural Housing Stability Assistance Program, as required by the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act), enacted into law on May 20, 2009. The HEARTH Act consolidates three of the existing homeless assistance programs administered by HUD under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act into a single grant program and creates the new Emergency Solutions Grant Program and the Rural Housing Stability Program. The HEARTH Act also codifies in law the Continuum of Care planning process, as well as certain data collection requirements integral to HMIS, which is the current information technology system that HUD and its grantees use for the existing homeless assistance programs. This new program provides assistance to persons who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, and in worst case housing in rural areas.
