Coordinated Entry with Diversion
Pre-Application Workshop: January 28, 2022 at 10:00 A.M.
Applications Due: February 21, 2022 at 4:00 P.M.
The City of Durham, Community Development Department is soliciting proposals to serve as the central front door into Durham’s homeless system. The recipient will work with the Durham County Department of Social Services to serve as Entry Point Durham, a joint central unit that conducts intakes, assessments, diversion, prioritization, and referral in accordance with the Durham Continuum of Care’s Written Standards for Coordinated Entry. The goals of this project are to prevent as many clients as possible from entering the homeless system, to increase accessibility of the Durham homeless system, and to ensure that services are prioritized fairly based on level of need.
On Tuesday, January 18, 2022, the Community Development Department will release the Request for Proposals and solicit applications via ZoomGrants™, the department’s online application management system. The expected amount of funding to be available is approximately $955,000 and the funding source will be the City of Durham’s Dedicated Housing Fund.
All applications must be submitted via ZoomGrants™ no later than 4:00 P.M. on Tuesday, February 21, 2022. Proposals received after the deadline date and time will not be accepted and will be deemed ineligible.
