Eastern PA CoC Announces the Availability of Funding to Better Serve Domestic Violence Survivors

The Eastern PA CoC is announcing that $1,218,944 of funding is available to better serve survivors of domestic violence. This funding is available through two RFPs – (1) to provide Rapid Re-Housing assistance to DV survivors, and (2) to support the creation of a DV Coordinated Entry Specialist positions. These RFPs and applications are available below and on the Eastern CoC 2018 NOFA webpage.

RFP for DV Rapid Re-Housing:  Per HUD’s DV Bonus guidelines, the CoC is only eligible to apply for one DV Rapid Re-Housing (DV RRH) project.  As such, the Eastern PA CoC has partnered with the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV), who will serve as the Project Applicant.  Together, the CoC and PCADV are jointly soliciting applications, evaluating applications and selecting agencies interested in providing DV RRH assistance in their community.

RFP for DV Coordinated Entry Specialist:  The Eastern PA CoC is looking to partner with a Victim Service Provider, located within the CoC’s geographic area, who will employ a Domestic Violence Specialist to work within the Coordinated Entry System (CES) – Connect to Home – and further the CoC’s efforts to implement policies, procedures, and practices that better meet the needs of survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking.

Responses to either of these RFPs are due by Close of Business on August 20, 2018.  The CoC will inform organizations responding to this RFP if their project was selected by August 31.  

Please help the CoC reach stakeholders in your community by forwarding this email to organizations that may be interested in applying for funding through the Eastern PA CoC.  Thank you!
