Request for Proposals
Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs
The Department of Community Services, in cooperation with Partners in Care, requests proposals from qualified nonprofit agencies providing shelter and supportive services to persons experiencing homelessness. Proposals received will be evaluated and prioritized for inclusion into the City’s application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs.
Project proposals submitted by qualified organizations will be reviewed based on the experience and capacity of the proposing organization, the degree to which the funding request is consistent with HUD’s desire to use Continuum of Care (CoC) funds for housing-related activities, the degree to which CoC funds will be leveraged with other resources, anticipated accomplishments in relation to CoC priorities, the prospects for the long term operation of the proposed project, the participation of the proposer in the local Continuum of Care process, and the ability of the proposing organization to implement its proposed project in a timely manner. Special consideration will be given to projects that provide permanent housing and serve the chronically homeless.
Interested agencies may request a Request for Proposals in electronic format via e-mail by sending a request to Stephanie On at firstname.lastname@example.org. A printed copy of the Request for Proposals will be made available upon request from the Department of Community Services, 715 South King Street, Suite 311, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96813 by calling 768-7752. Proposals must be submitted and time-stamped by 4:00 p.m. on Monday, September 8, 2008 to the Department of Community Services at the above address.
Questions regarding the CoC Programs may be directed to Stephanie On at email@example.com or 768-7752.
