FY2021 Reallocation and Prioritization of projects for the CoC Program Application (posted 10/26/2021):  At the Housing Solutions Board meeting on 8/20/2021, Summit Pointe announced they were not seeking to renew the HHAP grant. Funds were offered for competition for reallocation. Grant had been historically difficult to spend out due to its restrictive nature. It only serviced homeless with diagnosed disability and provided minimal security deposit/rental assistance. 9/1/2021, the CoC / HSB received an official letter confirming intention to have the funds reallocated. 8/25/2021, CoC website was updated with the opportunity and shared on the Homeless Coalition listserv and Facebook. The opportunity was shared again on 9/1/2021 and CoC received local applications from the Haven of Rest (emergency shelter) and SHARE Center (drop-in). CoC did outreach to Neighborhoods Inc (new CE) and Safe Place (DV shelter) to discuss. Project applicants were notified of the evaluation rubric and ranking tool via email on 10/14/2021 by the CoC Director.  The Housing Solutions Board met on 10/25/2021 in special session to review and priorize submitted projects. The 7 submitted projects were prioritized as follows:

The following rating and ranking tool and rubric will be used to evaluate all CoC local projects for the CoC Program Competition.

            Review and Ranking : Projects accepted, reduced, ranked (posted 8/20/2019): On August 16, 2019, the Housing Solutions Board (HSB) Allocations Committee met to review and rank the project proposals to the CoC of Calhoun County (MI-514). Prior to the meeting, several teams from the HSB audited and ranked the projects at the agency locations. Agencies were sent ranking tools in advance. All of the renewals were placed in Tier 1 with the exception of HHAP which was also split into Tier 2. The HHAP program has not spent out its funds consistently over the years and has funds unspent this year.  HUDs funding process dictates that we can only have 94% of our Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) funded in Tier 1. Therefore, it was determined that the HHAP program funds would be reduced rather than higher performing projects. This year, we had an opportunity to apply for the CoC Bonus funds and Summit Pointe Housing was the only agency that competed for them.
