Review and Ranking : Projects accepted, reduced, ranked (posted 8/20/2019)

  • On August 16, 2019, the Housing Solutions Board (HSB) Allocations Committee met to review and rank the project proposals to the CoC of Calhoun County (MI-514). Prior to the meeting, several teams from the HSB audited and ranked the projects at the agency locations. Agencies were sent ranking tools in advance. All of the renewals were placed in Tier 1 with the exception of HHAP which was also split into Tier 2. The HHAP program has not spent out its funds consistently over the years and has funds unspent this year.  HUDs funding process dictates that we can only have 94% of our Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) funded in Tier 1. Therefore, it was determined that the HHAP program funds would be reduced rather than higher performing projects. This year, we had an opportunity to apply for the CoC Bonus funds and Summit Pointe Housing was the only agency that competed for them.
Agency Project Project Type Rank Tier 1 (slot 1-5) Tier 2 (slot 6-8) Sum
Summit Pointe HMIS Renewal HMIS 1 $ 40,000 $     – $ 40,000
