General Council meets March 12 about City CA letter of intent
Prepare to cast your agency’s vote!
Collaborative Applicant (CA) staff earlier this week emailed TPCH members a reminder of – and background materials for – a Special TPCH General Council on March 12, 3:00 pm, at the Pima County Housing Center.
If you did not receive this email, email firstname.lastname@example.org immediately to request a copy. Copies will be emailed through 5 pm Monday, March 11 and available in print at the meeting.
There are two very important main topics.
• How should TPCH proceed (with FY 2019 Continuum of Care Notice of Funding and a CA) in response to the City of Tucson Letter of Intent and subsequent Questions and Answers in response to our request for information for entities wishing to be our new CA?
• Should TPCH adopt a new, more inclusive but streamlined Board structure that replaces one-third (instead of half) of voting Board members each year?
Please review the forwarded materials carefully, discuss with your leaders, and come prepared to discuss these questions and cast your agency’s vote!
