Rapid Re-Housing Program

Rapid Re-housing is a federal and state funded program designed to give literally homeless individuals and families the opportunity to rent their own place. Those that qualify as literally homeless can come from places not meant for habitation, such as cars, campsites, and benches. Persons coming from Emergency Shelters, Domestic Violence Shelters, Hospitals, Hotels, and Transitional Living Programs may also qualify for Rapid Re-Housing assistance. Case Managers work closely with clients to create a financial plan and budget that is catered to affording a room, an apartment, or house for rent. The program provides clients with direct financial assistance towards their security deposit and/or towards rent. The program also ensures case management for clients.

Permanent Supportive Housing Program (Coming Soon)

ACTS Women's Empowerment Center is a newly-renovated 6,000 square foot house, which has been remodeled to allow for five units of Permanent Supportive Housing for individuals and families, as well as offices and group activity rooms in the basement. The house sits on a full acre of wooded land with a brand new children's play set.

Once opened, the new program is designed to provide long-term housing and case management services to chronically homeless households struggling with substance use or mental health disorders.

Affordable Housing Program

ACTS Affordable Housing Program provides qualified low- and moderate-income households the opportunity to live at a reduced rent in privately-owned and privately managed market-rate units located in Prince William County. The Department of Housing and Community Development works with ACTS Sustainable Housing Team to ensure units rented under the program are comparable to market rate apartments, are occupied by households who meet the income guidelines of the program, and that eligibility recertification for the program is completed on an annual basis.
