CoC Grant Funding Process:
In Jackson County, any organization wishing to submit a proposal for funding to provide permanent supportive housing for homeless individuals or families completed a pre-application that was reviewed by the Homeless Task Force membership. New projects were rated and ranked with other projects which are seeking renewal. Current CoC projects include Salvation Army’s Hope House, Access’ Woodrow Pines, Community Works’ Transitional Living Project and Rogue Valley Council of Governments’ Home At Last.
All submitters made short presentations about their proposed projects at the Homeless Task Force meeting, Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. at 2231 Table Rock Rd, Medford. Approved projects completed the federal HUD application on line by 5 p.m. October 27, 2014.
For additional information about the process, call Donna Lea Brooks at ACCESS: 541-774-4330.
