Request for Proposals to Provide Tenant-Based PSH

UNITY of Greater New Orleans, the lead agency for the homeless Continuum of Care (CoC) for New Orleans and Jefferson Parish, is seeking proposals for a Permanent Supportive Housing Project, which will provide leasing assistance and supportive services to 30 individuals and/or families with a priority to serve disabled homeless veterans and the chronically homeless. Proposals are due no later than noon on November 18, 2014. 

A total of $550,191 will be available for this project to fund one agency to serve as project sponsor with an initial 22-month period to begin December 2014. It is anticipated that this grant would be renewed annually for the project sponsor assuming that it is in good standing with UNITY regarding program and fiscal compliance. The persons eligible to be served in this PSH project are mentally and/or physically disabled veterans, chronically homeless individuals/families, and other disabled individuals with the longest histories of homelessness that are in need of on-going supportive services in order to become and remain stably housed. Clients will be referred to the program from the PSH Registry and the Coordinated Assessment System which prioritizes clients for placement into the program. This program will provide leasing assistance as defined by the FY2009 NOFA under which this project has been funded; therefore only the supportive services funds (not the leasing dollars) need to be matched, and the tenants can lease directly with the landlords without the necessity of requiring the agency to do master leasing.

Threshold criteria:

  • Non-profit 501(c)3 Organization or Government Agency
  • No audit findings in most recent two years.
  • Applicant must provide 25% cash match for supportive services.

The proposal narrative should be limited to no more than 5 pages. Proposals must be addressed to Martha Kegel, Executive Director of UNITY, and submitted to proposals@unitygno.org no later than noon on Tuesday, November 18, 2014. Do not submit proposals by any other method.
