Q&A: Is it acceptable to use HPRP funds on renting a room for housing, excluding motels?

From HUD virtual helpdesk: Yes, HPRP assistance can be provided in these situations as long as there is a lease in place and there is no conflict of interest (e.g., there may be a conflict of interest if the landlord is the renter's brother). It is the grantee's job to fully assess the situation to ensure a conflict does not exist, and that the applicant has no other resources, support networks, or housing options to prevent homelessness.
