Question : Question one from NOFA training:
Does Veteran Rehab funds also have to be fully expended in order to access the 2023 HOME rehab funding or is it just prior HOME rehab awards that need to be expended?
We would like to strongly encourage you to utilize your Veteran rehab funding with urgency as there is an approaching expiration date. However, Veterans rehab is a separate program, so it would not directly affect your ability to use the 2023 HOME funds.
Question : Question two from NOFA training:
If we are already receiving funds, do we need to fill out an application? Or are we automatically eligible for this NOFA funding?
Yes, you will need to re-apply as this is a new notice of funding availability(NOFA) However, because this is an "open NOFA" you may request additional funding upon 80% completion of the current award as long as funds last.
