Questions about this Request for Letters of Interest should be directed to Jodie Barnes at Jodie.Barnes@tucsonaz.gov.
The City of Tucson has planned with the community to respond to the COVID-19 virus by supporting and funding efforts to provide housing and services to homeless persons. As the federal Stimulus package is being put in place, the City of Tucson expects to receive CDBG and ESG funds. The usual ESG 100% match will not be required, but it is expected that other federal requirements will be followed. The total amount of funding that is available is unknown. Expectations may evolve as the COVID-19 situation changes; agencies will be expected to work closely with community teams and adjust where needed. Agencies that currently receive ESG, CDBG, General Funds or Continuum of Care funding through the City of Tucson are eligible to apply for funding to provide the elements listed below.
Due Date & Submission
Interested agencies must submit the LOI documents to the City of Tucson by 12:00 pm, April 6, 2020 to Jodie.Barnes@tucsonaz.gov. Agencies responding to the RFI should provide a document on the agency’s letterhead responding to the questions and instructions provided in the Request for Letters of Interest.
