Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Continuum of Care Program Competition
The County of San Luis Obispo Department of Social Services is releasing a local Request for Proposals (RFP) for agencies interested in applying for FY 2021 Continuum of Care funds. The County has approximately $1,002,026 for Renewal Projects, $80,577 for new Bonus Projects, and $241,732 available for new Domestic Violence Bonus Projects.
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program (24 CFR part 578) is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, Indian Tribes or tribally designated housing entities (as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103) (TDHEs)), and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.
The first part of the applications will be submitted through an online portal called e-snaps, and are due by October 12, 2021 at 9 a.m. An additional, supplemental application will also need to be submitted by email or in person to the Homeless Services Unit at the County Department of Social Services by October 12, 2021 at 9 a.m.
