HOMELESS HOUSING, ASSISTANCE AND PREVENTION PROGRAM - ROUNDS 1 & 2
NOTICE OF FUNDING AVAILABILITY
The Imperial Valley Continuum of Care Council (IVCCC) would like to invite qualified applicants to apply for funds to address the needs of homeless individuals and families transition into permanent housing while supporting the efforts of those individuals and families to maintain their permanent housing in Imperial County.
On July 31, 2019, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Assembly Bill 101 (AB 101), creating HHAP Round 1. On June 29, 2020, Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law Assembly Bill 83 (AB 83) which appropriated funding for HHAP Round 2. HHAP Round 1 is a block grant program designed to provide jurisdictions with one-time grant funds to support regional coordination and expand or develop local capacity to address homelessness. The grant focuses on moving homeless individuals and families into permanent housing and on supporting the efforts of those individuals and families to maintain permanent housing. HHAP Round 2 is also a block grant program that focuses on funding permanent housing interventions directly and provide clear pathways to connect people to permanent housing options. It is designed to continue building regional coordination and a unified regional response to reduce and end homelessness.
A proportion of the HHAP Round 1 and Round 2 funds authorized under AB 101 and AB 83 was awarded to the County of Imperial and the other to the Imperial Valley Continuum of Care (CoC). The County of Imperial’s allocation has been redirected to the CoC to be administered on their behalf. Therefore, this RFP will award available funding under both the County of Imperial and Continuum of Care. A total of $3,939,585.26 is being made available through this funding opportunity.
This RFP announcement provides the information and forms necessary to prepare a proposal for the HHAP Round 1 & 2 grant funds. Qualified applicants are invited to submit proposals in accordance with this RFP no later than Friday, October 28, 2022 at 4:00 p.m.
