Rapid rehousing is a CoC Program – Run through non-profit organizations but are funded by HUD
What exactly do you need help with? Did you get any instructions when getting the approval message? You should have been working with a local non profit housing agency.
Which government agency approved you or was it a local charity or non profit? Are you directly contacting the local agency that approved your rapid rehousing application? Be sure to keep your Housing Agency contact info in a safe place after applying. And make sure the Housing Agency has your most recent contact info! If a Agency reaches out to you and you do not respond generally you are removed from the waiting list and will need to reapply.
