BACKGROUND: 

Clark County Social Service requests that the Board of County Commissioners (Board) ratify the submission of the grant application to HUD for the Rural Nevada CoC HMIS Project and authorize the Administrator of Human Services or his designee to accept any grant funds awarded, including the cash match.  This is a 12-month project with an opportunity to apply for an annual renewal as part of the CoC consolidated application.

On November 17, 2015, the Board approved submission of the grant application to HUD for the Rural Nevada CoC HMIS Project for $78,341. Notice from HUD that the 2015 application was selected for award was announced on March 8, 2016.   On July 29, 2016, HUD executed the first grant agreement for this project.  Annually since 2016, Clark County has applied and been awarded the annual renewal for this project.  This application is for the 6th renewal, with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2022.  

As the HUD-designated statewide HMIS Lead, Clark County Department of Social Service is being requested to apply for the renewal grant to continue this project on behalf of the Rural Nevada CoC.  This 2021 renewal application for $78,341 will continue to provide software licensing and administration to this CoC.  Clark County Department of Social Service will allocate funds to Bitfocus, our HMIS Administrator, to implement these activities.  The HMIS used by Rural Nevada is also used locally and by the Rural Nevada/Balance of State CoC. 

The Nevada Housing Division will provide ESG funds for match of $19,585 for this project.  This grant application was incorporated into the 2021 Rural Nevada/Balance of State CoC consolidated application that was submitted on November 16, 2021 to HUD.  Due to time constraints with the application and recommendation timeline, the application is being submitted for ratification after submission. 

The item has been approved as to form by the District Attorney’s office.
