 Baltimore Interfaith Hospitality Network - Community Meeting June 17, 2014 at 6:30 PM

The Mayor’s Office of Human Services – Homeless Services Program is holding an informational meeting for all Baltimore area congregations that are interested in learning about the Baltimore Interfaith Hospitality Network.  The goal of an Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) is to provide families experiencing homelessness with basic human needs- shelter, safety, and sustenance-with a spirit of warmth and hospitality.  In the IHN program, houses of worship provide space for overnight accommodations; congregations supply volunteers; and social service agencies assess and refer families to the program. An Interfaith Hospitality Network gives congregations the opportunity for outreach ministry, focusing on the needs of people experiencing homelessness in the community.

The meeting will be held at Immanuel Lutheran Church 5701 Loch Raven Blvd. Baltimore, MD 21239.  To RSVP for this meeting please contact Jennifer Mayo at 410-545-1979 or

 Request for Interest – FY 2014 New CoC Program Projects

The Mayor’s Office of Human Services – Homeless Services Program (MOHS-HSP) is issuing a Request for Interest (RFI) for new projects to be funded under the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Fiscal Year 2014 CoC Program Competition Notice of Funding Available (NOFA).  The Continuum of Care Program provides funding for Permanent Housing, Transitional Housing, Rapid Re-housing, and Supportive Services Only projects, as they conform to the CoC Program Interim Rule and the HEARTH Homeless Definition. However, the City of Baltimore is only eligible for “bonus projects,” which have, historically, been Permanent Supportive Housing projects for chronically homeless persons/families and may also be for Rapid Re-Housing Projects for families.  Agencies that are interested in operating a new project under the CoC Program should familiarize themselves with the Federal Regulations governing this program.
Interested agencies should read the full announcement in the link below for guidance on how to submit a Statement of Interest (SOI). Submissions are due no later than 4:00pm, May 1, 2014.
