- Catholic Charities Rapid Rehousing, $48,107
- CHD Family Support Housing (conditional award), $530,189 (3 year grant)
Projects were scored and ranked in order. The lowest ranking project had its budget reduced to enable it to fit into the maximum allowable grant for Tier 2; because the amount of the grant was reduced, it was also changed from a 2-year grant to a 1-year grant. The second-lowest scoring project was slightly reduced in order to fit the entire grant into Tier 1. There was only one applicant for the Bonus Project. While that project was selected for inclusion in the application, it will need to meet conditions regarding selection of housing stock in order to be included in the submittal to HUD.
These projects include 26 new units of PSH for chronically homeless individuals, 10 new units of PSH for chronically homeless families, and 7 new units of rapid rehousing for homeless families not eligible for Massachusetts EA shelter benefits.
Overall, the new and renewal projects provide PSH for 216 chronically homeless households, 8 units of transitional housing for homeless youth, and 17 units of rapid rehousing for families.
Congratulations to all the successful applicants.
