The CRD is inviting proposals from applicant organizations based in the Victoria Census Metropolitan Region engaged in providing services to homeless individuals and families. The Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) was announced as a result of the Federal Government's Economic Action Plan to provide funding in 2014-19 to support a Housing First model towards reducing homelessness. Key to this model is the ability to rapidly move chronically and episodically homeless individuals and families from the street or shelter into stable, long-term housing, with supports. The CRD is implementing the approved HPS Community Plan and priorities for the allocation of funding within the Victoria Census Metropolitan Region.

The Federal Government has increased their contribution to the HPS  Designated Communities and Aboriginal Homelessness funding streams in 2018/19, in addition to their current contribution.  Please download and read the attached documents carefully for further information.

This Call for Proposals is for a period from April 1, 2018 – March 31, 2019. The Designated Communities Funding will now include Non-Housing First eligible activities. HPS has developed a list of standardized priorities and eligible activities for the allocation of funding within these Funding Streams. Applications must be submitted in both electronic and hard copy formats.

An information session to outline the application process and HPS requirements will be held on October 4, 2017, 1:30-3:30 pm, Room 107 at CRD offices, 625 Fisgard St, Victoria, BC.

NOTE: This CFP is pending confirmation of funding from the Federal Government.

NOTE: The CFP 5 Application Guide in the Additional Documents section below is a mandatory download for applicants. Registration on this site is required in order to receive updates.  

Please e-mail Gina Dolinsky to request the full application package at: gdolinsky@crd.bc.ca.
