Your Input is Needed – Participate in TPCH Community Input Sessions Regarding the FY 2022 CoC Annual and Supplemental Community Applications.
Each year, TPCH is required to prepare a community application for CoC Program funds. The community application plays a critical role in our ability to retain and increase HUD funding for housing and services for people experiencing homelessness throughout Pima County.
TPCH will be holding a series of Community Input Sessions during which community stakeholders will provide input to improve this year’s community applications for the FY 2022 Annual and Supplemental Notices of Funding Opportunity. Each session will include a review of draft application sections and the opportunity to suggest improvements to our community’s funding application.
TPCH members and community partners are strongly encouraged to attend all community input sessions related to your individual and organizational expertise and role.
