HUD has just released the Tier I Continuum of Care awards for the recent competition. New Bedford has been awarded $1,575,909 for six programs (the Family Preservation Program, Portico, Step Up, THE CALL, Transition to Stability, Welcome Home and the City of New Bedford HMIS Project) that were ranked in Tier I. The Tier II announcements will be announced in the spring. Congratulations to the New Bedford Continuum, the program recipients and the Homeless Service Provider Network! This application was a great collaboration and truly a team effort.
