In the calendar year 2018, the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) in conjunction with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank Pittsburgh), released the first "Home4Good" funding RFP. The goal of this funding source is to, "provide grants to address systemic gaps in support and services and help make homelessness in the Commonwealth rare, brief, and non-reoccurring."

Local Marketing, Solicitation & Review of Projects

The FHLBank Pittsburgh and PHFA requested the participation of CoCs in Pennsylvania to assist in the local marketing, solicitation, and review of projects for Home4Good. The York City/County CoC discussed this opportunity, and the CoC voted to work with Home4Good at the June 28, 2018 meeting. On June 29, 2018, the CoC Lead Agency submitted the CoCs Commitment Letter to participate in this process, to PHFA.
