FY2018 Request for Proposals for DV Bonus Projects

The Western PA CoC announces the availability of up to $912,126 to further the CoC’s ability to serve survivors of domestic violence.  Three projects will be submitted for this funding:

  1. Rapid Re-Housing assistance to DV survivors
  2. Transitional Housing/Rapid Re-Housing Joint Component for DV survivors
  3. Coordinated Entry grant to support DV Assessment Centers

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 Western 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 TH/RRH Joint Component:  Existing Transitional Housing providers with experience serving DV survivors are invited to respond to this RFP.  The TH/RRH Joint Component model is described within the RFP and has proven to be a successful model to assist DV survivors to safely and successfully obtain permanent housing.

CE for DV:  Rather than issuing a third RFP, DV Assessment Centers will be contacted directly to submit a budget to support their work.

DEADLINE EXTENDED:  Responses for either of these RFPs are due by Close of Business on August 20, 2018 August 17, 2018.  The CoC will inform organizations responding to this RFP if their project was selected by August 31.  See RFPs for additional instructions.
