The Employment Committee will meet at 2 pm. We have a full agenda with much to share regarding the CoC application, our governance charter, and CoC leadership opportunities. The United Way of Collier County will also share information about a new initiative aimed at the ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) population.
More information on the CoC, including the November agenda and October minutes, are in the Continuum of Care section of the website. We do hope you’ll make time in your busy day to attend.
The CoC met Tuesday, October 29 and approved the 2014 application for funding for the HUD Continuum of Care Program. In complicance with HUD requirements, the FY2014 CoC FL-606 Project Priority Listing is available for community inspectionto view the Project Priority Listing.
The Collier County Continuum of Care (CoC) is in need of an agency to become the HMIS Lead for the May 1, 2015-April 30, 2016 contract year. Catholic Charities Diocese of Venice informed the Hunger & Homeless Coalition of its decision to step down as HMIS Lead for the Collier County Continuum of Care (CoC). While willing to supervise the project, Catholic Charities can no longer shoulder the burden of the $25,000 match requirement necessary for it to continue as HMIS Lead. Catholic Charities of Collier County will continue as HMIS Lead through its current contractual term ending April 30, 2015. On behalf of the CoC the Hunger & Homeless Coalition would like to thank Catholic Charities for its HMIS oversight and past financial support.
The CoC Program Application must be submitted to HUD no later than October 30, 2014. Thus, identifying an agency with the capacity and willingness to assume the role of HMIS Lead is an urgent matter before the CoC. The Hunger & Homeless Coalition, as the lead entity for the CoC, is working with its Board of Directors and the HUD Miami Field Office to identify options. In the meantime, the CoC invites agencies with the capacity and willingness to manage HMIS to consider filling this key vacancy. The approved level of funding is $99,662 and there is a 25% cash or in-kind match requirement.
Interested organizations should contact Angela Fisher, Executive Director of the Hunger & Homeless Coalition at 239-263-9363 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information
