Applications now open for City of Boise's Homeless Services Grant Fiscal Year 2023
The application for the Homeless Services Grant Fiscal Year 2023 is open today July 18th through Monday, August 15th, 2022.
The City of Boise serves as the lead agency for Our Path Home, the public-private partnership working to end homelessness in Ada County, and is committed to ending homelessness in Ada County. Because of this commitment, the City continues to bolster the work of Our Path Home non-profit partner agencies by investing in evidence-based best practices and by exploring new opportunities to better serve our community.
The City of Boise funds grants for homeless services each year from the Neighbors in Need (NIN) Fund and can obligate additional monies for a homeless services purpose when funding is available. Together, the funds available during any given year are combined into a single grant process, the Homeless Service Grants, that funds projects beginning on October 1st and ending on September 30th of the following year. For Fiscal Year 2023, the total funding is $375,000. The Our Path Home Executive Committee oversees the grant making processes and makes a recommendation to the Mayor and City Council regarding the expenditure of funds. The Our Path Home Executive Committee, for the FY 2023 Homeless Services Grants, will designate the grant making process work to a grant review team, composed of different community stakeholders connected to ending homelessness and staffed by the Our Path Home staff.
The City, in support of Our Path Home, is soliciting project applications for Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) for these funds. The call for applications outlines Our Path Home’s funding, prioritizing those experiencing literal homelessness and generally includes the following:
- Rapid re-housing to provide rental assistance and case management, as necessary, to households moving out of homelessness into new homes
- Coordinated entry system, Our Path Home CONNECT, support to assess, prioritize and refer households to housing intervention programs
- Homeless prevention to avoid the significant community costs associated with literal homelessness and the trauma experienced by being unhoused
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due Monday, August 15th, 2022.
