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." This flexible funding stream is available again in 2019. 

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 April 25, 2019 meeting. On May 6, 2019, the CoC Lead Agency submitted the CoCs Commitment Letter to participate in this process, to PHFA.

Funding Resource

As Home4Good is a relatively new funding resource, the CoC acknowledges that all parties are still learning the most efficient way to market, solicit proposals, and review proposals. The CoC will do it's best to ensure that all approved documents are posted to this website, however, the CoC recommends contacting the Chief of Programs Management and Compliance to ensure that you are included on the CoC's distribution email list if you are interested in this RFP.
