Western PA CoC soliciting Notice of Interest (NOI) Forms
11 June 2021
The Western PA CoC is soliciting Notice of Interest (NOI) forms from agencies interested in applying for new projects, or applying to expand existing projects, to effectively address and end homelessness in the Western PA CoC. This includes new/expansion projects for the upcoming FY2021 Continuum of Care (CoC) Application this summer/fall, as well as additional projects that may be funded via other funding streams.
The CoC is specifically looking to identify interest in the following project types :
New Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Projects
New Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Projects
New Transitional Housing/Rapid Re-Housing (TH-RRH) Joint Component Projects
Supportive services to enhance the existing Coordinated Entry system
Note: This could include management of the CoC By Name List and/or housing navigation for participants on the CoC By Name List.
Expansions of existing CoC grants, including Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), Rapid Rehousing (RRH), and Transitional Housing/Rapid Rehousing (TH-RRH) Joint Component
Note: The CoC would like to ensure that all CoC grants have sufficient funding to appropriately compensate the staff who are working on the project. If CoC grantees are interested in expanding their funding for staffing (e.g. supportive services line item), please submit an NOI form. CoC grantees may also submit an NOI form if they are interested in expanding units in their existing project.
Funding is not guaranteed to organizations that submit an NOI Form. This is a preliminary process in order to identify organizations interested in applying for new or expanded funding. Once HUD releases the 2021 CoC NOFA, the CoC will release a Request For Proposals. To be included in the CoC’s funding application to HUD, organizations must reply to the forthcoming RFP and the project must be selected by the CoC’s Funding Committee. New CoC funding will be awarded by HUD based on the performance of the Western PA CoC in the 2021 Continuum of Care competition.
To indicate your interest in a new project, please submit the NOI survey form by close of business (5pm) on Tuesday, July 6th. The NOI form should be submitted via Alchemer at the following link: http://s.alchemer.com/s3/Western-PA-CoC-FY21-NOI.
