The City of New Bedford’s HSPN has received, reviewed and voted on the 2019 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 FY2019 round received, reviewed, vetted, evaluated, scored and ranked all applications for this competition. There were no new applications received in this competition round. Eight renewal applications were reviewed, six of which were for permanent housing (PH) programs (five permanent supportive and one rapid rehousing), one 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 15, 2019, the HSPN membership carefully reviewed and heard the recommendation of the PRC following a PowerPoint presentation (a copy of which is available here: LOOKING AT THE 2019 COC FUNDING ROUND ) detailing this year’s NOFA and considerations relative to the competition, HUD priorities and that of the local continuum. In a unanimous vote, the HSPN membership accepted the report of the PRC and its recommendation for ranking in the 2019 CoC Competition.
