BRHP Resources for Residents

Utility Assistance Resource List

A list of state and local utility assistance resources. Please note, this list is not a comprehensive list and will be updated.

BRHP Search Tool

The BRHP Search Tool allows any applicant, resident or property partner to quickly determine if a home is in an Opportunity area, and provides an estimated range of rents based on the payment standard. The tool provides valuable neighborhood context, including transit lines, grocery stores, child-care centers and school information. The tool displays the zoned schools for that particular home, as well as the GreatSchools score and a link to the GreatSchools page for each school.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

The Violence against Women Act of 2013 (VAWA) provides special protections for victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking who are applying for or receiving assistance under a Housing Choice Voucher program.  Protections are not limited to women but cover victims regardless of sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation.  If state or local laws provide greater protection for such victims, those laws apply along with VAWA. Under VAWA, BRHP allows tenants who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking to request an emergency transfer from the tenant’s current unit to another unit.
