The Western PA CoC Announces Availability of Funding to Continue Serving Survivors of Domestic Violence

The CoC will be applying for $912,136 of DV Bonus funding to support three new projects – (1) Rapid Re-Housing assistance to DV survivors, (2) TH/RRH Joint Component, (3) Coordinated Entry grant to support the work of DV Assessment Centers.  RFPs and applications are available on the Western PA CoC’s NOFA page.

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.

RFP for TH/RRH Joint Component:  Existing Transitional Housing providers with experience serving DV survivors are invited to respond to this RFP.  The TH/RRH Joint Component model is described within the RFP and has proven to be a successful model to assist DV survivors to safely and successfully obtain permanent housing.

CE for DV:  Rather than issuing a third RFP, DV Assessment Centers will be contacted directly to submit a budget to support their work.

Responses for either of these RFPs are due by Close of Business on August 20, 2018.  The CoC will inform organizations responding to this RFP if their project was selected by August 31.  See RFPs for additional instructions.
