Subsidized or Not-Subsidized: A review of Exit Destinations

The following exit destinations should be marked as "Rental by Client, Other On-Going Subsidy":

1)  Federal or State Public Housing
2)  Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher
3)  Project-based Section 8
4)  HUD 202 Elderly/Disabled Housing
5)  Low Income Tax Credit Housing (see listing to the right)
6)  City or State-funded Housing First programs

Persons/Families marked as "Rental by Client, No On-Going Subsidy" should be limited to individuals living in market-based rents.  Households receiving short-term deposit or first month's assistance who are living in market-rate rental housing should still be marked as "No On-Going Subsidy".  Occassional rental assistance does not mean subsidized housing.  Subsidized housing is based on rental rate.

Persons receiving CoC-Funded Permanent Supportive Housing should be marked under "Permanent Housing for formerly homeless persons."  Veterans receiving VASH-funded housing should be marked under "Rental by Client, VASH Subsidy".  If you need clarification on any exit outcome, please contact the HELP DESK for assistance.

HUD announces Open Comment on CoC Formula; Provides Formula Tool to Show Alternative Funding Scenarios

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced an OPEN COMMENT for 60 days period  from July 21 to Sept 19th (estimated) to collect input from providers and advocates on adjustment to the HUD Homeless Funding Formula.  Accompanying the Open Comment is an Excel-based Tool that provides interested persons with the ability to show input on funding based on changes in the allocation weight of several selected factors by HUD. Factors include population, housing affordability, rent burden, aging housing stock, and poverty.  The Open Comment does solicit input on other potential factors that could be used for funding. Missing from the factors is the actual number of homeless including the estimated unsheltered homeless counts.  In the posted Federal Register Notice, HUD addresses why it does not believe the annual PIT numbers should be used for reallocation and provides details on the factors chosen.  HUD also provides four alternative scenarios for funding uses different combination of factors. For more general information, see the HUD announcement from Rep. Scott Peters (San Diego D-CA-52) whose office has been the driving force to relook at the formula.  Both San Diego and Hawaii are areas of the country that receive allocations far less than an allocation based on homeless prevalence.
