Request for Proposal Q & A:

Q: Our agency fiscal years do not line up with calendar years. In the budget sections of the application, is it required to provide the calendar year information?

A: No, you may use your agency's fiscal year information. Please note, however, that the City's 2018 funding period will be 1/1/18-12/31/18.  


Q: Program Application Question 8 Demographics. Our agency is currently operating a program but not collecting certain demographic information the application is asking for. How should we fill out the section?

A: Please provide your best estimates.


Q: Program Application Question  8 Demographics. Our agency is applying for a program that is currently operating and using HMIS to track participant demographics data. However, the age breakdown in the application does not match the HMIS Servicepoint report breakdown. How should we respond?
