NOTICE

The Department of Children and Families Office on Homelessness released an addendum to the Unified Homelessness Grant for Fiscal Years 2019-20, 2020-21, and 2021-22, Release for Application (RFA) on February 19, 2019.

Based on the updated RFA, the CoC will offer a unified RFP for the following project:

 

1.    Challenge Grant - $300,000 per fiscal year to establish a front door to the homeless crisis response system:

The front door will assist the CoC with the ability to identify and engage all individuals and families experiencing or at-risk of experiencing homelessness as quickly as possible (United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, 2018). The homeless crisis response system front door must include telephone helpline services and may include but would not be limited to diverting and or preventing homelessness when possible, reducing the amount of time homeless individuals and families spend on wait lists, as well as, placing individuals and families with the most appropriate agency for their housing needs in the quickest and most cost-effective manner.

Due to a very stringent timeline for the submission of the full CoC application to the Department of Children and Families Office on Homelessness, there is a very short turnaround for submitting the application to the HLB. RFP’s and related attachments are due to the HLB by Noon on March 4, 2019.

There will not be a bidder’s conference for this RFP and all questions must be submitted in writing by 5 p.m. on February 25, 2019 to Susan Finlaw-Dusseault at sfdusseault@PinellasHLB.org.

USICH, HUD RELEASE CRITERIA AND BENCHMARK FOR ENDING CHRONIC HOMELESSNESS


 The U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) and its 19 federal member agencies have adopted a vision of what it means to end homelessness in this country. The following criteria and benchmarks define the federal government's vision for ending chronic homelessness for individuals within communities. The criteria and benchmarks developed are intended to help communities build and fine-tune their systems, to help define the vision of ending chronic homelessness for individuals within communities, and to align local efforts in support of that vision, with a focus on long-term, lasting solutions. USICH will soon be releasing a self-assessment questionnaire to further assist communities in determining whether they have achieved the criteria and benchmark, and whether their system has a comprehensive outreach strategy, and a robust, real-time tracking system.
