Staff did a brief review of the HUD timeline for submittal of our 2011 McKinney Application. Deadline is October 24, 2011.
A) Goals and Achievements Chart
Homebae staff, Jason, went over for a final time the goals and achievements chart that will be included in the 2011 Exhibit One application. The chart has been vetted at the Funding Committee and the Full Board. Board member recommendations, taken at the last meeting, were incorporated. The LHCB made a few final suggestions on wording in the goals section. Numerical goals and action steps were approved.
B) CoC Coordination
Jason reviewed the charts about CoC coordination with the VA, school district, and other federally funded programs, in particular those that came out of the Federal stimulus. Minimal changes were made to the narrative from last year.
C) Discharge Planning
Ali reviewed the charts that describe discharge planning efforts from jails, mental health institutions, the hospitals, and foster care. No changes were made to the narratives of these sections other than some data on the number of housing units available for foster youth.
Motion made to approve the charts 3A, 3B, 3C, 4A, with edits proposed by the LHCB
D) Project Ranking
The LHCB members reviewed the final list of renewal projects that will be in the McKinney application for 2011 requesting funding. In addition there will be the bonus project, Mary Helen Rogers Senior Community, it is Shelter Plus Care. If funded, this program will house chronically homeless seniors.
Board members approved of the bonus project but also commented that in the future it would be good to have a family housing project apply.
