Reminders for Project Applicants

July 31, 2018

Project applicants:

Deadline reminder: Renewal applications for CoC projects in suburban Cook County are due Aug. 1 at 5pm, and new project applications are due Aug. 8 at 5pm. Please see the timeline and the last page of the Alliance application form for instructions on what to submit and how.

Consolidation: Renewal PSH projects, just a reminder that the Alliance is strongly encouraging PSH projects to consolidate as described in the NOFA. See p. 9 & 31 of the NOFA for HUD’s instructions. We have also included instructions on the Alliance training guide (Help Sheet 2018); in particular, while HUD project applications must be completed in esnaps for each of the original projects plus the combined project, the Alliance application form need only be completed for the combined project. Questions? Contact Kurt or Jennifer.

Reallocation Plan: The reallocation plan adopted at the June board meeting is included below. The Alliance responded directly to applicants that submitted a recapture chart by the July 14 deadline, showing the recapture average, the amounts previously cut in the 2015-2017 competitions, and the remaining balance that may be considered for a recapture-based cut in the 2018 competition. In the July board meeting, the board further instructed the review panel to avoid percentage-based cuts—the 4th item described on the reallocation plan.
