Opening Doors Fairfield County Funding Announcement

Deadline to apply: July 25, 2018

The Preliminary Application has been released by Opening Doors of Fairfield County (ODFC)/CT-503 to solicit proposals for the provision of new projects for permanent housing and services for the following sub-populations: single adults, families, young adults and parenting youth.

ODFC competes annually with other communities nationally to secure federal funds through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) program in efforts to end homelessness. CT-503 is seeking project applications from organizations located in the ODFC jurisdiction for inclusion in the CoC’s 2018 application for HUD CoC funds under the bonus funding component. (Selected applicants will be included as sub-recipients in the HUD submission.) In FY 2017 CT-503 was awarded $605,000 for new permanent housing under the bonus round as part of the 2017 CoC competition. For FY 2018 the CoC is eligible to apply for $614,312 under the CoC’s 2018 application. CoC bonus funds have been prioritized to permanent housing (RRH and PSH) and related services. In addition to the expected funding level for bonus funds, additional funds may be available based on potential reallocation of low performing HUD funded projects. More information will be available regarding increased funds once the FY 2018 renewal project evaluation scores are released.
