February 2015 Supportive Housing RFP​

FINAL UPDATE: May 7, 2015

County HSS Funds and City Housing Trust Funds RFP

  • In February 2015, Mecklenburg County Community Support Services and City of Charlotte Neighborhood & Business Services released a Request for Proposals for supportive service dollars (up to $800,000 for two to three fiscal years) and Housing Trust Fund dollars ($1.5 million) respectively.
  • On February 13, the County and the City hosted an information session for interested applicants.  Nine representatives from local service providers attended.
  • On March 6, one request for Housing Trust Fund dollars was received.  The request was in the amount of $500,000 from the Men's Shelter of Charlotte for their MSC Tryon Street Campus Shelter Renovation.  There were no requests for County supportive service dollars made.
  •  On April 2, 2015, The Men's Shelter withdrew application for the Housing Trust Fund.  No funding awards were made for this RFP.
  • The County and the City solicited feedback from partners regarding this RFP to understand the outcome.  Staff learned that because there was no source of rental assistance included as part of this RFP many providers chose not to apply.        
  • More funding opportunities will continue to be available through the Housing Stability and Supportive Services Partnership.
