City of Albuquerque: Tenant Based Rental Assistance Supportive ServicesDeadline: September 30, 2019
The Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Supportive Services program will accept proposals from qualified non-profit organizations interested in providing supportive services to TBRA clients to increase housing stability for low- and moderate-income households who are homeless or precariously housed, by providing supportive services to maintain stable housing.
The successful organization(s) will be responsible for administering a HOME Match Program Year 19 Supportive Services Program in a manner satisfactory to the City of Albuquerque and consistent with any standards required as a condition of providing these funds. Such program will include the following activities eligible under the HOME Match Supportive Services Program:
- Conduct an initial self-sufficiency assessment of potentially eligible persons that includes, but is not limited to, an assessment of personal needs, including needs for housing, eligibility entitlements, employment history, and child care needs. The assessments may be completed in whole or in part by appropriately qualified staff of the Contractor. This assessment shall be the basis for the preparation of a supportive service plan that must be maintained for each participant in assisted housing. Approximately every 90 days, the participant must be reassessed and an amended plan for supportive services should be prepared.
- Provide case management and supportive services necessary to facilitate independent living and provide directly or arrange for the provision of services that shall include to the extent needed, based on the initial assessment and re-assessment services such as: case management, mental health services, assistance with the tasks of daily living, substance abuse treatment, day care, job training, and counseling.
- Refer individuals and families who are currently experiencing homelessness to Albuquerque Housing Authority (AHA) to receive TBRA assistance. Upon referral, provide the support and documentation to AHA.
- Enter complete, accurate, and timely data for all participants receiving services into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) according to existing HMIS standards. Coordinate with the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness as needed for technical assistance and guidance.
The City has established a priority to fund projects that lead to improved outcomes to:
- Increase Behavioral Health Stability
- Increase Housing Stability
- Increase Public Safety
- Increase Family Resilience.
This involves a focus on addressing the Social Determinants of Health to achieve greater well-being and equity for all. Substantial evidence confirms the link between social, economic, and physical conditions and health outcome disparities. Social Determinants of Health include access to healthcare services, availability of services to support housing and behavioral health stability, lifelong education options, public safety, and social services.
Amount: Up to $250,000 is available.
Eligibility: An agency which is a unit of state or local government and/or an agency currently incorporated as a nonprofit corporation, duly registered and in good standing with the State of New Mexico Public Regulation Commission, which has not-for-profit status under 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code and which has demonstrated capability in providing the services for which it is applying.
