The projects selected through this RFP will be submitted to HUD as part of the Western PA CoC’s FY2018 Continuum of Care Application. Please review the RFP for additional details.

FY2018 Request for Proposals for DV Bonus Projects
The Western PA CoC announces the availability of up to $912,126 to further the CoC’s ability to serve survivors of domestic violence. Three projects will be submitted for this funding:
- Rapid Re-Housing assistance to DV survivors
- Transitional Housing/Rapid Re-Housing Joint Component for DV survivors
- Coordinated Entry grant to support DV Assessment Centers
RFP for DV Rapid Re-Housing: Per HUD’s DV Bonus guidelines, the CoC is only eligible to apply for one DV Rapid Re-Housing (DV RRH) project. As such, the Western PA CoC has partnered with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), who will serve as the Project Applicant. Together, the CoC and PCADV are jointly soliciting applications, evaluating applications and selecting agencies interested in providing DV RRH assistance in their community.
