The Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) has released what they call the “final draft” of the LAHSA “Streets to Homes” request for proposals (RFP). You can read it by clicking here. We aren’t so sure that this is actually the final draft of this, so feel free to email your councilman with your thoughts on this proposal.
From the VNC:
The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) has released the final draft of an RFP for the “Streets to Homes Program.” The primary purpose of the program is “… to assist homeless clients who live in RV’s and Campers access services, and ultimately housing, getting them off of neighborhood streets and onto a pathway to permanent, stable housing.”
The bidding period begins on September 15th; the deadline for submission of bids is October 15th. The program will be initially funded for 1 year, set to begin on or about November 1, 2010 and ending on October 31, 2011 and may be renewed subject to funding availability.
