Board-Approved Project Priority List - With Consolidations Shown

August 28, 2018

The board of directors of the Alliance to End Homelessness in Suburban Cook County voted on Friday, August 24, to accept the Project Priority List as recommended by the Project Review Panel, previously distributed in draft form on Aug. 22.

Today, the Alliance is posting the board-approved Project Priority Listing. The Project Priority Listing is the ranked list showing all projects, their rank order, and the recommended funding for each.

“Why is The Rank Number for My Project Different From the Aug. 22 Version of the List?”

Five projects on the list represent consolidated projects, where 2-3 previously separate projects are combined into one project. Per HUD instructions, the previously separate projects must also submit project applications in esnaps, and the Continuum of Care must assign these projects a rank number. If HUD chooses not to fund a consolidated project, they will fund the individual projects instead. Because these individual projects (shown in light yellow) have been assigned a rank number, most other projects’ rank number has changed. This new number does NOT affect the running total, shown in the far-right column. It does NOT affect the Tier 1 cut-off or the risk level for any project on the list.

“Can Applicants Appeal Their Project’s Score, Ranking, or Approved Amount?”

Yes, an applicant may appeal a project review decision by submitting an appeal letter by email to Jennifer Hill, executive director, at jennifer@suburbancook.org. On Monday, Aug. 27, applicants were individually notified if their projects were reduced, rejected, or accepted and ranked. These notifications included instructions for an appeal. The deadline for an appeal is Thursday, Aug. 30 at 12:00 noon. Appeals will be decided by Sept. 10.
