The City of New Bedford’s HSPN has received, reviewed and voted on the 2018 Final CoC Rank and Order of Projects. The HSPN’s Performance Review Committee (PRC), comprised of HSPN members with no relationship–financial or otherwise–to any of the applicants for funding in the FY2018 round received, reviewed, vetted, evaluated and ranked all applications for the competition. This year one new application under the DV Bonus was received. Eight renewal applications were reviewed, six of which for housing programs, one of which was for the continuum’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) and one of which was for the continuum’s coordinated entry program, The Call.
On August 16, 2018 the HSPN membership carefully reviewed the recommendation of the PRC following a PowerPoint presentation (a copy of which is available here:LOOKING AT THE 2018 COC FUNDING ROUND ) detailing this year’s NOFA and considerations relative to the competition, HUD’s priorities and the local continuum. In a unanimous vote, the HSPN membership also accepted the report of the PRC and its recommendation for ranking in the 2018 CoC Competition.
