Local homeless services providers planning on applying for new projects for federal grants through the Southern Nevada Homelessness Continuum of Care Board must attend a training session later this month.
The technical assistance training session for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Funds will be held on Monday, July 29, in the County Government Center Pueblo Room at 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. The training session is 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The training is mandatory in order to be eligible to submit a new project application for permanent housing, including projects that would serve those fleeing domestic violence or human trafficking. Registration is available online here https://forms.gle/rfW3wdrRpNcEMwEo9. The local application materials are available online through www.HelpHopeHome/funding-opportunities.
Organizations must submit their application to the local Continuum of Care Evaluation Working Group before 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 12. The working group will review local applications and then submit a consolidated application to HUD by September 30.
HUD requires applicants meet specific mandates, such as utilization of the Homeless Management Information System, a regional database of homeless individuals and their backgrounds. Additionally, applicants must meet all the application criteria and requests for information. To access the local application online, go to www.HelpHopeHome.org.
Last year, Southern Nevada received approximately $14.2 million in HUD CoC Homeless Assistance Funds for housing and support services provided by local nonprofit organizations and governments agencies.
