The City of Largo has opened an application cycle for interested non-profit agencies to provide housing navigation services for Largo.
Donor Name: City of Largo
Type of Grant: Grant
Type of Entity: Non-profit Agencies
Deadline (mm/dd/yyyy): 12/20/2021
Grant Duration: 1 year
Housing Navigation Services would actively seek out available housing units and coordinate with landlords and property managers to coordinate access to those units for households served through this program. Eligible households would include households being housed in units in Largo City limits or households whose last/current place of permanent residence was in the City of Largo into permanent housing within or outside Largo. Households served in the program must be low- or moderate-income (not exceeding 80% Area Median Income) and will be required to self-certify their income in order to receive these housing navigation services.
These services are not intended to provide full case management but can be used in conjunction with Rapid ReHousing Programs, housing voucher programs, and other such programs to identify housing units if these services are not replacing existing services or supplanting funding for services provided through other funding (no duplication of benefits). The scope of services can also include serving those households that are not currently enrolled in rehousing programs but are at risk of homelessness to find permanent housing.
One agency will be selected for Housing Navigation Services and the period of performance will be one year with the potential for up to two additional annual extensions based on performance and funding availability.
Provide housing navigation services to help locate housing units and place residents who have been displaced during the Pandemic or are in imminent risk of displacement into permanent housing. Due to significant increases in rents and low housing supply that has become exacerbated in Largo during the COVID-19 Pandemic, combined with higher health risks associated with dislocation and homelessness, housing navigation services are an important component to COVID-19 Pandemic response and recovery to help people find and get access to permanent housing.
- The City is only accepting applications this grant cycle for housing navigation services.
- The project must be an eligible activity under the regulations of the CDBG Program. Projects also must meet the CDBG National Objective: Benefit low- and moderate-income households, clientele or areas.
