Additional Information of Eligibility:
Only PHAs that have an existing Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) with HUD for HCVs are eligible to apply for funding under this announcement.

PHAs wishing to share the administration of the program with another PHA may apply jointly, however, the Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) will be solely with the lead PHA applicant and all reporting must be submitted via the lead PHA applicant.

The maximum number of vouchers will be based on the lead PHA voucher program size.

Eligible PHAs must have demonstrated a commitment to administer FYI Competitive, which shall be verified by an executed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the PHA and PCWA.

HUD strongly encourages adding other important partners, such as a State, local, philanthropic, faith-based organizations, and CoC, or a CoC recipient it designates, to the partnership.

The MOU must also identify the assistance being provided and state who will be providing such assistance.

HUD will only consider funding one application per PHA.

This one application limit applies regardless of whether the PHA is a State or regional PHA.

In instances where a PHA has more than one PHA code number due to its operating under the jurisdiction of more than one HUD Field Office, a separate application, under each code, shall be considered for funding with the cumulative total of vouchers applied for under the applications not to exceed the maximum number of vouchers the PHA is eligible to apply for under this NOFA (i.e., no more than the number of vouchers the same PHA would be eligible to apply for it had only one PHA code number).

Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.

Honest Tea: Living Somewhere in the Grey

“TEO” and co-founder of Honest Tea, Seth Goldman, talks about living in a shade of grey – businesses wouldn’t exist without its consumers. As he said, “There are current issues we deal with, and even if we solve one of those issues, we should be moving on to the next one. As long as we are a consumer-based economy, there’s no way around it. No way to totally lose that area of grey.”
