The Grand Rapids/Wyoming/Kent County CoC seeks funding proposals for up to $1.5 million to construct, rehabilitate, and/or acquire structures for the purposes of providing non-congregate shelter to households experiencing homelessness. The Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA) recently released a Request for Proposals for the HOME-ARP Non-Congregate Shelter Acquisition and Rehabilitation Program. This opportunity is to promote an expansion of homeless services in a non-congregate setting. Through a competitive funding round, MSHDA’s division of Rental Assistance and Homeless Services will award up to $6 million to fund up to eight (8) projects, with no more than one project per Continuum of Care (CoC) and with a maximum award of no more than $1.5 million per project. Funds must be spent within three (3) years of the effective grant date.
The CoC will select one (1) proposal to receive a letter of support for submission to MSHDA. Proposals are due no later than 4pm on Monday, April 24, 2023.
