On November 4, the Cities of Champaign and Urbana published the Housing and Homeless Innovations (HHI) Consolidated Application for agencies that support affordable housing development and homeless services in Champaign County. A total of $5.8 million in grant funds are available to support permanent affordable housing units, homeless shelters, tenant-based rental assistance and program management, housing navigation, housing gaps and other services that support homeless populations. Applications are due by December 12, and funding decisions are expected to be made in early January 2023.
An informational session was held on November 4. Twenty-two interested applicants were in attendance to learn about the application process and to ask questions. The session was recorded by the Communications Division and is available for on-demand viewing for those who couldn’t attend. The next informational session will be held on November 28 at the Urbana Free Library. Learn more about Housing and Homeless Innovations here.
