Continuum of Care Mid Shore Roundtable on Homelessness

We serve as the lead agency for the five county Continuum of Care (CoC) known as the Mid Shore Roundtable on Homelessness. The Roundtable, under leadership from Mid Shore Behavioral Health, applies yearly for funding from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide permanent supportive housing for individuals and families who are homeless and have a mental health disability. The Roundtable strives to address the complex issues of homelessness in our rural region. We also ensure the provision of Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Administration and participate in statewide meetings and planning efforts.
Continuum of Care Housing

 

We implement all Continuum of Care Supported Housing Programs in the Mid Shore, which consists of 63 units of housing for families and individuals who are homeless and have mental health disabilities. Program participants locate housing units throughout the five county region that are safe and habitable, a percentage of the participants income goes towards their housing cost and the program pays the remainder in a subsidy to the landlord. Participants are connected with case management services and work on personal goals to achieve self-sufficiency.

The Mid-Shore Roundtable on Homelessness has completed and submitted the FY2019 Continuum of Care NOFA Competition.  The CoC Collaborative Application and Priority Project Listing were both submitted this afternoon a few days before the Monday, September 30th deadline!  They are attached for your review and will be posted on our website as well.  https://www.midshorebehavioralhealth.org/continuum-of-care-housing-program

 

For this NOFA we submitted a total of 5 project applications (4 renewal applications and 1 new bonus application) requesting  $782,386.00 in funding to serve homeless individuals and families in the mid-shore.  If all projects are awarded, $700,166.00 of the funding will provide affordable housing, $60, 487.00 of the funding will go towards the operations of our local homeless management information system (HMIS) and $21,733.00 of the funding will go toward planning and implementing our Coordinated Entry.

 

The NOFA was very challenging, so thanks to everyone for your support!  Special thanks goes out to Jazzmine Davis, our CoC Support Specialist.  Her assistance with this project was invaluable! 

 

I want to thank all who worked hard on project applications to ensure they were submitted on time.  Thank you to all who provide information when asked, it was extremely helpful.  This year we highlighted many of the accomplishments the Roundtable has achieved but there is still much that we need to work on, Homeless Solutions and Coordinated Entry being the largest!  I am glad we have a wonderful group of partners to help ensure we achieve these goals as well!

 

Thank you all for your commitment to helping persons and families who are impacted by homelessness in the Mid-Shore Region, the Roundtable is proud to have you as a partner!
