Background Information: Each year the Council invites agencies to submit bids for funding for homelessness-related services. Bids are considered by a panel of officers, and applicants have to demonstrate how their proposed service will prevent or relieve homelessness. The panel considers the strategic and operational value of the proposed service and the ability of the submitting agency to self-fund in whole or in part when awarding funds.
