Homeless Outreach Funding Agreement


As stated in the Downtown Outlook Plan, the CRA may support and fund outreach programs to assist homeless persons in regaining self-sufficiency and to help minimize the impacts of the homeless on the residents and businesses within the Downtown area. For the last few years, under an agreement with the CRA and other entities, the Health Care Center for the Homeless, Inc. (“HCCH”) has been providing outreach services within the Downtown CRA.  The CRA desires to partner with this agency again in order to retain the services of the two homeless outreach specialists currently serving the Downtown CRA.

 To that end, the CRA will enter into a 12 month funding agreement with the HCCH and the Homeless Services Network of Central Florida, Inc. (“HSN”) in order to provide funding for two homeless outreach specialists for the term of October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. The total cost is estimated at $106,110 (for October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017), which includes salary and benefits for the two outreach specialists as well as operating expenses. The CRA will contribute $61,050 ($61,050 for October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017), HSN has agreed to contribute $35,000 and HCCH will cover the remaining expenses. The HCCH will supervise the activities of the homeless outreach specialists and will provide quarterly progress and summary reports to the CRA and HSN.
