This is a reminder that the Statewide Homeless Council will be meeting next Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 from 9:30 to 2:00 at MaineHousing, 353 Water Street in Augusta. There is also a call in option for those not able to attend in person. Please see the Agenda for details. Minutes here are from August. September minutes will be posted once approved. Also included here is a revised version of the Maine Prioritization Chart that will be reviewed and possibly put to a vote on Tuesday.
Thank you to everyone who participated in and contributed to this year’s Maine Continuum of Care NOFA Application process. The links below will bring you to the full MCOC Application and Project Priority Listing (these two components, submitted separately, make up the complete application). HUD will now review and evaluate our submission along with applications from almost 400 other CoC’s from across the country in order to make their funding determinations. As soon as HUD announces their Scoring and Awards information, it will be posted here on the Maine Homeless Planning website.
(Zip File Attachments do not appear in the PDF of the app)
Below are details regarding some additional items that will be discussed hopefully put to a vote at tomorrow’s MCOC Meeting.
Project Scoring and Ranking Results
All Projects were Scored using the New and Renewal Scoring Tools developed by the Project Committee and approved by the full MCOC. Projects were then Ranked according to the protocols approved by the full MCOC: Renewal Projects at the top, then “First Time” renewals, and then New Projects. Please note that there were issues with the Monitoring and Scoring of the MaineHousing TBRA first time renewal project that will be discussed tomorrow. Please see the MCOC Project Ranking Chart below.
MCOC Governance Updates
Our Governance was last updated in July 2017 after the Merger of PCOC and MCOC. Upon review, there are a few items that need to be added: 1) details regarding the Youth Committee; 2) the Process for Involuntary Reallocation (inadvertently left out of the last draft); 3) designation of this site (www.mainehomelessplanning.org) as the official MCOC web address. Here is a link to the Full Revised Governance, but please note the language specific to items one and two below.
This Youth Committee exists to:
2. Involuntary Reallocation
Involuntary reallocations include any renewal projects that are entirely eliminated by the CoC, or that have their possible renewal funding reduced by the CoC. The CoC may pursue involuntary reallocation for renewal projects for multiple reasons, such as unspent funds, repeated negative findings during the annual monitoring process, or scoring very low during the recent MCOC renewal competition.
This is a reminder that the Maine Continuum of Care will be meeting this Thursday, September 21, 2017, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM (maybe longer). Please see the Agenda for details including Tandberg and call-in information.
The 2017 NOFA Application deadline is September 28. This will be the last regularly scheduled full MCOC meeting prior to the deadline, so this will be the last chance for the full group to review the information and either vote to approve it, or authorize the Steering Committee and/or Board of Directors to finalize and approve it.
(stay tuned – additional materials may be posted tomorrow)
