The City of New Bedford’s HSPN has received, reviewed and voted on the 2021 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 FY2021 round received, reviewed, vetted, evaluated, scored and ranked all applications for this competition. There were three new applications received in this competition round, two of which were expansion projects. One project eligible for renewal in this round, Transition to Stability, was reallocated in its entirety to two higher performing programs that presented the expansion projects.
Seven renewal applications were reviewed, five of which were for permanent supportive housing (PSH) programs, one for the continuum’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) and one of which was for the continuum’s coordinated entry program.
On October 21, 2021, 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 2021 COC FUNDING ROUND ) overviewing this year’s Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) and considerations relative to the competition, HUD policy and program priorities, funding, the process undertaken locally and the ranking recommendation. In a unanimous vote, the HSPN membership accepted the report of the PRC and its recommendation for ranking in the 2021 CoC Competition.
