Grant updates: Our Emergency Solutions Grant application is at the Office on Homelessness and we are just waiting to hear the outcome.

Thank you to those organizations that provided proposals for the Homeless Prevention Grant. Our grant has been submitted to the Office on Homelessness, and the proposals of Daystar Life Center of Citrus County and Lake Community Action Agency were included in our application.

A big thank you to all the agencies that came out to the mandatory Challenge Grant Application meeting, and then also those who attended the HUD COC meeting. The powerpoint presentations have been made available for you on this website. Please click on COC Docs and look for them under "Grant Information"

The HUD CoC NOFA has been released. The Notice has been posted on the FY 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition: Funding Availability on the HUD Exchange and on HUD’s website at www.hud.gov. The timeline for the HUD CoC projects and the required 2016 HUD Request for Proposals (RFP) Supplement are located on the COC Docs tab under "Grant Information". Any questions must be addressed via email to mfhcopeningdoors@gmail.com.

The Challenge Grant Request for Proposal is now available. For those who attending last Friday's mandatory meeting, please go to the COC Docs tab and you will be able to access the the RFP document as well as the Certificate for Lobbying form that you will need to complete. We are still finalizing the instructions document, and we will get it posted tomorrow.
