NOFA and Grant Programs
Housing Initiatives Statewide RFP Questions Posted 11/21/17
Q1: What are non HRF units?
A1: Non-HRF units are defined as units not funded with the requested NEP grant dollars but are funded 100% by leveraged funding sources.
Q2: What percentage of leverage funds? Would it leveraged per project?
A2: There is no specific leveraged funds requirement. All leverage would be looked at overall and not on a per project basis. Note: this is a highly competitive program and leveraging of other resources is evaluated within the scoring system.
Q3: We are thinking about partnering with a 501(c)(3) community foundation for the neighborhood enhancement program and we are wondering if we can apply for a project larger than $30,000 with the rest of the project funded by the applicant? Will the additional funding be considered for a match to the grant and will we receive additional points for matching funds?
A3: All applicants can apply for NEP funding up to $30,000. We encourage partnerships and collaborations that result in a larger scaled project due to leveraging of resources. Yes, all leveraged funding/matching dollars will be taken into consideration within the scoring system.
