Project Description:
NOTE:  Additional Information, January 14, 2022
Please see below questions and answers stemming from the Information Session held January 10, 2022: 

Q: If a proposal covers the main funding priority area as well as the secondary funding priorities, should an organization submit one proposal (encompassing everything) or two separate proposals?  If just one, will CE potentially then fund the primary priority and ignore secondary priorities if there aren’t enough funds for them?

A: Projects can be presented in one proposal as long as the activities support the primary funding priority (supporting individuals transitioning to independent housing without supports) and are eligible activities under the Reaching Home Directives. If you are applying for two separate projects, one under the primary funding priority and one that falls under the secondary funding priorities, they should be put into separate proposals.

Q: Will funded projects from the last CFP (September 2021) who indicated, as requested, that they would like multi-year funding be considered in this CFP for renewal/extension or do they need to submit a new application?

A: Extensions are only being provided to projects which were in place in May 2021 as recommended by the CAB at their May 2021 meeting.  September 2021 CFP funded projects are not being extended and would need to reapply for funding.

The CRD is inviting proposals from applicant organizations based in the Victoria Census Metropolitan Region and engaged in providing services to homeless individuals and families. Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy is a community-based program aimed at reducing and preventing homelessness. Officially launched April 1, 2019, this federal homelessness program is supporting the most vulnerable people in the Capital Region by improving access to safe, stable and affordable housing.  The CRD is the Community Entity for Reaching Home Designated Communities funding and administers these funds in the Capital Region.

This Call for Proposals (CFP) is for Designated Communities funding for the period of April 1, 2022 – March 31, 2024 for funding of approximately $845,000. Please note the specific funding objectives of this CFP. Details can be found in the Application Guide.
