YHDP Funding Availability – 2nd Round

The Springfield-Hampden County Continuum of Care (CoC) has issued a Request for Proposals seeking one or more applicants to provide medium-term (up to 2 years) rapid rehousing for homeless youth and young adults (YYAs).

The RFP seeks one or more agencies to provide a total of 30 units of rapid rehousing, to be staffed with a total of four case managers. The grant is for an initial two-year term and has a budget of $1,061,159; it will be renewable on an annual basis after the initial term.

The CoC has spent the last year creating a coordinated community plan to prevent and end YYA homelessness. This project will be one of four new coordinated programs created through the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Project (YHDP). The other programs are:

  • Coordinated Entry and Navigation Project – CHD Safety Zone and Gandara Center
  • Transitional Housing-Rapid Rehousing (11 units) – Gandara Center
  • Permanent Supportive Housing (8 units) – Mental Health Association

Proposals are due July 7, 2020 by 4 pm. Please contact Gerry McCafferty at gmccafferty@springfieldcityhall.com for more information.
