Vermont Office of Economic Opportunity issues RFP for Family Supportive Housing

By: Mia Watson

The Vermont Office of Economic Opportunity in the Department for Children and Families is now accepting proposals for the Phase IV Expansion of the Family Supportive Housing program for FY21. Family Supportive Housing places families experiencing homelessness into housing and provides long-term, intensive service coordination and case management to help families keep housing.

 Through agreements between non-profit services providers and housing providers such as land trusts, private landlords or housing authorities, local FSH partnerships will provide customized, intensive case management, service coordination and affordable housing to families with children who have experienced homelessness. Supportive services stay with participant families from homelessness through at least their first 24 months of housing and are adjusted or extended as necessary to promote housing stability and positive participant engagement.

More information on the RFP and the application materials are available online.  In addition, OEO will hold a webinar with more information on May 20, 2020 at 2:30 – 3:30PM. Register online for access. The webinar will be recorded and posted online.

The deadline to submit proposals is 4:00 PM on Friday, June 5, 2020.
