UNITY of Greater New Orleans, the lead agency for the homeless Continuum of Care for Orleans and Jefferson Parishes, is seeking proposals for the “Housing First Permanent Housing Project,” a new Permanent Supportive Housing tenant-based rental assistance project which will provide approximately 40 disabled homeless adults (and their families if applicable) their own apartments along with supportive services to help them remain stably housed. A total of $541,700 has been awarded to UNITY through the 2011 HUD CoC SuperNOFA competition for this project. This amount will fund one project sponsor for a 1-year grant period expected to begin by December 2012.
