Public Notification – CoC Application – Projects with Budgets to be Reduced
The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) requires that Strategies to End Homelessness (as the UFA/Collaborative Applicant for the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition funds) publicly notify the community as to which projects applying for CoC funds have been accepted into the CoC application, rejected from the application, and/or which have had their budgets reduced. HUD also asks that we specifically detail for HUD the amount of money reallocated between projects submitted by our CoC.
We will issue a separate email containing the final priority list of all projects, but as we have previously communicated, all projects which have applied for CoC funding by submitting a project application and participating in our local 2019 CoC competition will be included in the full OH-500 CoC Application to HUD, including all 6 projects which presented at the Community Prioritization Event.
This year, NO projects which have submitted applications through Strategies to End Homelessness as OH-500 UFA/Collaborative applicant have been rejected. However, it is important to keep in mind that a project being included in the application is not a guarantee of funding, as HUD ultimately decides how many of the projects in our CoC application will be funded.
Regarding projects that have reduced their budgets, freeing up funds to be reallocated to other projects: throughout the past year, Strategies to End Homelessness has worked with the following projects regarding reducing their budgets from 2018 CoC funding amounts. Strategies to End Homelessness is required to notify the full community which projects reduced their budgets, and to notify each such project in writing of the reason(s) for those reductions. Generally, those projects have already been involved in thorough written communication and collaboration with Strategies to End Homelessness regarding the amount of and reasoning for the reductions.
To meet the HUD community notification requirement, we are providing you with a list of reduced projects and that reasoning below:
Over the Rhine Community Housing
• Paths to Recovery 0302 – Reduction = $72.00. This small reduction occurred because the project budget was initially increased to serve a greater number of participants but then budget was reduced slightly after recalculating to align with FMR. This project will be included in the 2019 CoC application at this reduced amount.
• Anna Louise Inn 0363 – Reduction = $302,864.00. This project elected not to renew through the CoC Program. The project did not submit an application into the CoC Competition this year and therefore will not be included in the 2019 CoC application.
Nothing Into Something Real Estate 0439 – Reduction = $79,479.00. Project budget was reduced because subrecipient chose to reduce client capacity. Budget was reduced accordingly. This project will be included in the 2019 CoC application at this reduced amount.
Tender Mercies Dana Hotel 0362 – Reduction = $19,669.00. Project was reduced in accordance with the CoC Expenditure Threshold Policy that only allows projects to renew for projected spending of a maximum of 110% of the amount of the contracted subaward amount from the previous operating year. This project will be included in the 2019 CoC application at this reduced amount.
YWCA HUD DV RRH 0325 – Reduction = $1,318.00. Project was reduced in accordance with the CoC Expenditure Threshold Policy that only allows projects to renew for projected spending of a maximum of 110% of the amount of the contracted subaward amount from the previous operating year. This project will be included in the 2019 CoC application at this reduced amount.
