Below, please find the Houma Region's announcement of its request for proposals (RFP) for State Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funding for Funding Year 2018 (FY18)
Notice of Request for Proposals
Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government intends to apply for 2018 State Emergency Solutions Grants Program (ESGP) funds administered by the Louisiana Housing Corporation. Funding available under the Emergency Solutions Grants Program can be utilized for the payment of certain expenses related to operating emergency shelters; street outreach for the homeless; homelessness prevention; rapid re-housing assistance; Homeless Information Management Systems (HMIS); and administrative cost.
Applicants for grants under the State ESGP are limited to units of local government or one regional collaborative applicant from a Continuum of Care agency, which may distribute all or part of their grant amount to private nonprofit organizations for use in eligible program activities. Nonprofit organizations interested in developing a project proposal for possible inclusion in an ESGP funding application under consideration by the Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government may request a copy of the proposal materials by contacting:
Community Development Administrator
(985) 873-6591 email@example.com
To qualify for funding participation, a private nonprofit organization as defined by program regulations must be one which is exempt from taxation under subtitle A of the Internal Revenue Code, has an accounting system, a voluntary board and practices nondiscrimination in the provision of assistance. Matching funds (including in-kind contributions) equal to the amount of grant funds must be provided except under special circumstances when an exemption can be allowed. Program rules require that ESGP recipients involve, to the maximum extent practicable, homeless individuals and families in ESGP funded activities including constructing, renovating, maintaining, and operating facilities assisted under the ESGP Program; and in providing services for occupants of these facilities.
No funding obligations shall be implied based on the information in this solicitation of ESGP project proposals. The Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government reserves the right to accept any proposal or reject any and all proposals on such a basis as may be deemed to be in its best interest. The deadline for receipt and consideration of a proposal is 4:00 PM, July 27, 2018.
