Catholic Charities

ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO (Bizjournals.com) - Catholic Charities has launched a homelessness prevention program with federal stimulus funds.

The nonprofit, which worked in conjunction with others that focus on homelessness in the city to create the program, is using $1.7 million in stimulus money for the Homeless Prevention & Rapid Rehousing Program to assist those who are on the verge of becoming homeless.

The program provides temporary rental assistance to households likely to achieve and maintain stable housing, but it is not mortgage assistance.

Catholic Charities officials said the Albuquerque office is getting more than 1,000 calls weekly inquiring about housing assistance.

To qualify for the funds, an applicant must have worked within the past 18 months and must provide proof of employment. He or she must also provide proof of eviction or possible eviction. Applicants must also be able and willing to work and earn an income that will allow them to maintain stable housing.

For more information, call (505) 724-4670.
