Request for Interest
Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs
The Department of Community Services, in cooperation with Partners in Care, requests applications from qualified nonprofit agencies providing shelter and supportive services to persons experiencing homelessness. Applications 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 Programs FY2013.
Project applications 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 Continuum of Care (CoC) goals, 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.
