Proposed Goals for MFA Funding for Albuquerque and Balance-of-State CoC Agencies

Permanent Supportive Housing:
i.     At least 65 percent of clients served during the program year remain in the program for at least seven months.  Formula #1: Total number of clients who exited who stayed at least six months + total number of clients who are still in the program who have been there at least six months.

ii.     If outcome (i) is not met, then at least 60 percent of clients served during the program year remained in the program for at least six months. Formula is the same as formula #1 AND at least 85 percent of clients served throughout the program year are still in the program and exited to another type of permanent housing. Formula #2: Total number of clients who exited to permanent housing + total number of clients currently in the program. 

iii.    HUD goal is 77 percent, using formula #1.

Transitional Housing:
i.     At least 60 percent of clients who exited the program during the program year moved into permanent housing.

ii.    HUD goal is 65 percent.
