Reviewing NOFA 2017 changes and opportunities, our 2016 score and HUDs feedback Reviewing community input from 2016 NOFA and soliciting further input at an open meeting on 8/7/17 7 Strategic DirectionElem Recommendation 1: Reallocation of general purpose TH into new Joint TH and PH-RRH component: Pursue reallocation that strengthens our system and application package and is aligned with our guiding principles
Continue to utilize strategies already in use: Maintaining a minimum scoring threshold to continue the reallocation of low performing projects regardless of project type-consistent with prior reallocation processes, and Inviting voluntary reallocation 8 Strategic Direction Recommendation 2: Strive to have 90% of PSH project beds either 100% dedicated to the chronically homeless or to the new HUD project PSH DedicatedPLUS
An existing PSH project that is not 100% dedicated to serving the chronically homeless may indicate in its FY 2017 renewal project application that it will be a "DedicatedPLUS" project 9 Strategic Direction Recommendation 3: Solicit applications for bonus projects - Open to expansion and new bonus projects Recommendation 4: Limit revisions to the local applications to those that increase clarity, reduce work load and/or incorporate the above
recommendations Recommendation 5: Utilize the same guiding principles as the 2016 NOFA round 10 NOFA 2017: Key Changes Reallocation and Performance (Page 10) HUD is increasing the share of the CoC score that is based on performance criteria Permanent Housing Bonus (Page 11) Can request up to 6% of Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) = $1,996,375 for 1 or more permanent housing bonus projects.
No Points for Project Type in Tier 2 (Page 16) Program activity type criteria has been eliminated 11 NOFA 2017 Key Changes New Projects Joint TH and PH-RRH Joint Component (Page 20) Can be created with reallocated or bonus funds Both activities are required in same project A good approach in communities with high unsheltered populations DedicatedPLUS (Page 18)
Expands who can be served by PSH An existing PSH project not 100% dedicated to serving the chronically homeless can self-declare includes projects with 100 % of beds dedicated to CH individuals and families 12 NOFA 2017: Key Changes Expanding existing projects (Page 12) Reallocated or bonus funds can now be used to expand an existing project rather than a stand-alone project
Code of Conduct (Page 39) Projects need to check their Code of Conduct on file in e-snaps profile Submit without changes Renewing projects identical to prior years can select a submit without changes option in e-snaps 13 What we heard from Community Primary Activity Type
Keep same points for existing PSH impacted on outcomes and performance by taking higher need clients Challenges are the same for PSH and TH programs, in working with higher need clients and when a project is small Addressing HUD and Local Priorities We can differ from HUD; projects need an opportunity to explain current practices and prioritization of populations not reflected on HUD required period HomeStretch should propose a formal agreement to include projects 14
What we heard from Community Addressing HUD and Local Priorities If given priority points for projects who house chronically homeless and other high-need populations, there is a need to better track outcomes Other Comments If data during required HUD period does not accurately reflect performance, projects should have an opportunity to address it and earn points Open narrative questions (such as HF) should be strategic and targeted Build a robust appeals process
