BACKGROUND: 

Clark County Social Service (CCSS) requests that the Board of County Commissioners ratify the submission of the Southern Nevada Homelessness Continuum of Care (SNH CoC) Unsheltered NOFO Homeless Management Information System project (Unsheltered HMIS), a 2022 new grant application for the Southern Nevada Homelessness Continuum of Care Unsheltered NOFO consolidated grant application due October 20, 2022 to HUD; authorize the Administrator of Human Services to sign the grant documents; accept any grant funds awarded; and authorize the creation of one Part Time Hourly Management Assistant or equivalent position, contingent on award from HUD. The Unsheltered HMIS was written in response to the 2022 Supplemental to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness (Unsheltered NOFO) for the CoC. This is a 36-month project with an anticipated start date in 2023 and going through 2026. Due to time constraints with the application and recommendation timeline, the application is being submitted for ratification after submission.

Of the total grant award approximately $21,333 is budgeted per year for personnel and fringe benefit costs for one (1) Part Time Management Assistant to assist in the support of all organizations and implementation of all services related to this funding opportunity, for a total of $63,993 for all three years.

CCSS is applying for $360,000 for thirty-six (36) months of services. Clark County will provide $90,000 in in-kind match through CCSS' contract with Bitfocus. This grant application was incorporated into the 2022 Southern Nevada Homelessness CoC Unsheltered NOFO consolidated application that was submitted on October 20,2022 to HUD.
