Who are they, how did they become homeless, and what keeps them from getting a job and moving on with their lives? Mid Florida Homeless Coalition continues to educate the communities about these facts and many more.
It takes all of us working together to identify the needs, gaps in services, and ways to meet these needs. You can be part of the solution by becoming a paid member or making a private donation.
What does that mean? We, as the Lead Agency, will be completing an application made up of projects from throughout the four counties that we serve, and should funds be awarded to us, we will then sub-contract with those organizations that have projects in the application. (This is the same process as the Homeless Prevention Grant and the Challenge Grant.)
The Emergency Solutions Grant was released on April 27th. A copy of the application can be found here. The maximum that we will be able to be awarded for the 2016 funds is $250,000. At least 40% of these funds will be required to be used for Rapid Re-Houisng.
We are in the process of putting together a RFP that will be released by Tuesday, May 3rd and will be required to be returned within two weeks. A review committee will be convened to score applications and make the determination of what projects will be submitted. We will then be using your proposals to complete the ESG Application LPZ19.
We highly recommend that if you are interested in applying for these funds that you access the State's application, review it, let me know if you have any questions about the application, and that you start writing proposal as our RFP will look much like this application so that we can roll the proposals into this application as it is due on May 25th.
