Permanent Supportive Housing
As we continue to spend time evaluating the viability and need for Supportive Housing in Rock Hill, we feel strongly in the further development of this program to create a community wide impact reaching far beyond the Supportive Housing program itself. To show this, we are committing one of our homes to continue building the Supportive Housing program. HDC owns a 3-bedroom, 2-bath single family home at 509 Bynum Ave. Rock Hill, SC that will be up for occupancy by a family or a group of individuals.
The Housing Development Corporation is excited to announce a partnership opportunity with a non-profit in Rock Hill, SC that is considered an emergency shelter per the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s definition. Agencies will be scored using a rubric and judge’s panel. In your application, please demonstrate how your organization meets the 6 requirements listed below. The scoring panel will consist of 4-8 individuals and their total scores will be combined to award this opportunity to the highest scoring organization. There is an opportunity for organizations to submit a combined application. For combined applications please outline how the 6 scoring categories and the associated responsibilities would be divided. Please add any questions or contingencies to the submission.
Points will be awarded on a 26-point basis for the following:
