September 10, 2019

To Whom It May Concern:

On behalf of the Jackson County Continuum of Care, on September 10, 2019, I sent approval letters to all applicants requesting funding through the Jackson County Continuum of Care in the 2019 NOFA funding cycle.

Specifically, Community Action Agency was notified that the four renewal applications it submitted were fully funded, and the 2 Bonus funding applications it submitted were also approved for the amount requested. TTI was notified that the one renewal application it submitted was also approved for funding at the amount requested.

No applications were rejected and no funding was reallocated.

The Continuum of Care also approved a Planning grant to address priority implementation gaps in our coordinated discharge activities as well as other housing planning work to be submitted by Community Action Agency.
