These projects include a DV Bonus Project, “YWCA RRH for Vulnerable Survivors of DV Expansion Project” in the second tier.  If this project is selected as a DV Bonus Project, it will be removed from the rankings, and all projects (new and renewal) below it will slide up in the rankings.  If it is not selected as a DV Bonus, it will be funded as a Bonus Project.  These rankings reflect that scenario of the project not being funded in the DV Bonus category.

Voluntary Reallocation

  *The following project voluntarily reduced their eligible funding amount in order to make additional renewal funding available for reallocation to new projects:

  • Sonoma County Community Development Commission, Renewal Rental Assistance – Persons with HIV/AIDS – Reduced project from $853,874 to $603,874

  This funding was reallocated and currently supports projects #17 and #19 on the Priority Listing.

  Project Consolidations

  **As permitted in the 2019 Continuum of Care Competition, the following projects propose consolidations:

  1. Catholic Charities applied for the following projects to be consolidated. Each project was submitted/ranked individually and as a fully consolidated application:

  • PSH 2
  • PSH 3
    • PSH 2 (Consolidated)      

***This project was not scored due to having an incomplete Annual Performance Report (less than a year of operating activity) and lags in project startup.  The Evaluation Task Group recommends keeping it in Tier 1. 

****Project has not completed a full year of operation as it was awarded in the FY 2018 CoC Competition (YWCA and CSN); Coordinated Entry and HMIS are mandated system infrastructure and not scored by the Evaluation Task Group.  

Projects straddling Tiers

The SCCDC’s New Project, HMIS Expansion 2019, is the only project straddling tiers.
