Kitsap County Housing and Homelessness Division – HHGP and AHGP Funding Recommendations

The funding recommendations for applications submitted for the 2020 Homeless Housing and Services Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) were developed by the Grant Recommendation Committee, a group of citizen volunteers appointed by city and county elected officials, in accordance with the 2020 Housing and Homelessness Grant Program Policy Plan. These recommendations include proposed uses for both Affordable Housing Grant (AHGP) funds and Homeless Housing Grant (HHGP) funds.

A 2020 Shelter Operations Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued to target funding specifically to homeless shelter programs. Agencies and programs that met the criteria for the RFP are recommended for funding at a pre-determined annual bed rate that was identified in the RFP, depending on the level of shelter services provided (Drop-in Shelter, Continuous Stay Shelter, or Enhanced Services Shelter). Funding for these awards will come from Homeless Housing Grant funds. If the funding amounts are approved, one-year fee-for-services contracts will be executed, with a second-year contract extension if there is satisfactory contract compliance and performance.

Funding recommendations for these Shelter Operations grants will also be presented to the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners at their October 28, 2019 meeting, 5:30pm at the Kitsap County Administrative Building, Commissioners Chambers, 619 Division Street, Port Orchard.
