What you need to know

The Nebraska Homeless Assistance Program (NHAP) is a grant program comprised of the Nebraska Homeless Assistance Trust Fund and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) to assist in the prevention and alleviation of homelessness. NHAP funds are allocated to non-profit agencies across the state of Nebraska and are used in conjunction with other state and federal funds to provide services to people who are at-risk of homelessness or literally homeless.  Programs provided through NHAP and other homeless assistance funding include:

Street Outreach: Essential emergency services to assist families that are residing in a place not designed for regular sleeping accommodations

Homelessness Prevention: Rental, financial assistance and/or services to prevent eligible individuals and families from becoming homeless.

Emergency Shelter: Short-term, temporary living arrangements for homeless individuals.

Rapid Rehousing:  Rental, financial assistance and/or services to connect eligible individuals and families who are literally homeless with permanent housing destinations.

Tip

NHAP is not a direct provider of services, please refer to the map to find services available in the Continuum of Care (CoC) regions.

About Public Access Points for People Experiencing Homelessness:

Public Access Points are agencies throughout Nebraska that assess and refer homeless people to the most appropriate housing program and/or community resources, including the Rapid Rehousing programs.  The Public Access Points are part of Nebraska's Coordinated Entry System which is a process designed to ensure that individuals and families with the highest vulnerability, service needs, and lengths of homelessness receive top priority in housing placement. 

For further information on the Coordinated Entry System, see the following:
