INNterim Housing & Family Services Receives Grant Funding for 2016 and 2017
I am very pleased to announce that INNterim Housing has received renewal of its US Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grant funding and Community Development Block Grant funding for 2016 and 2017.
These grants, totaling approximately $395,000 will be used to support the programs and services at INNterim’s ten Permanent Supportive Housing Units in Baltimore County and its Transitional Living Center on Sudbrook Lane in Pikesville, Maryland. The grant renewals have also been increased by over 5% to help meet additional costs of leasing and other operating expenses.
According to HUD, this round of funding was the most competitive ever, both locally and nationally. This is consistent with HUD’s policy goals as well as Congressional direction to stringently review performance, increase competition among local Continuums of Care and not simply fund renewals in the competition. Because INNterim has provided Permanent Supportive Housing for several years it has been an important part of the Baltimore County Continuum of Care and continues to provide a high level of service to chronically homeless women and their children.
While these government grants are absolutely essential for INNterim to run these vital programs for twenty families, comprised of nearly seventy women and children, they only cover about 50% of our operating costs. INNterim still needs the generous support of the local community to maintain these programs.
Your continued support of INNterim is greatly appreciated and I hope we may count on your support before the conclusion of our fiscal year on June 30, 2016. Thank you so much for your commitment to our mission and vision.
