Second Round FY19 CoC New Project Funding Opportunity: The Detroit CoC is re-opening the new project funding opportunity for a second round of applications for the FY19 CoC competition. Agencies that want to apply for new project funding during this second application round must attend an information application meeting on August 20, from 9:30 - 11:30 AM at the Northeast Guidance Center (2900 Conner, Detroit). New project applications will be considered for the following:
Domestic Violence Bonus Projects
Agencies may apply for new Rapid Rehousing (RRH) projects that specifically serve persons fleeing domestic violence, including persons fleeing human trafficking. There is approximately $2.5 million available for the CoC to apply for projects of this type.
Permanent Housing Bonus Projects
Agencies may apply for new or expansion Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) or Rapid Rehousing (RRH) projects. The amount of funding available for these project types will be given at the meeting on August 20.
Any agency may apply for new projects of this type. Current CoC funded agencies or agencies that do not currently receive CoC funding may apply for new projects.
Current CoC-funded agencies may apply for new expansion funding to expand a current PSH or RRH project to add additional units or services.
PSH projects may be either scattered-site or project-based.
Application materials for this second round of new project funding are posted below.
