Request for Proposal for ERA FAQ’s
1.What qualifies as an allowable expense under ERA Admin/ERA Funding?
Regarding allowable expenses under ERA Admin/ERA Funding, you can find detailed information at this link: https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/coronavirus/assistance-for-state-local-and-tribal-governments/emergency-rental-assistance-program/faqs)
2.Is the deadline for RFP submission on October 13th at 5 pm strict?
Yes, the deadline for RFP submission on October 13th at 5 pm is firm. Given the ERA program's sunset date of September 2025, there is a pressing need for partner selection.
3.If an organization is interested in applying for more than one program component, should separate proposals be submitted?
If an organization is interested in applying for more than one program component, it is up to the discretion of the organization whether to submit separate proposals for each component or to combine them into a single proposal. If they choose to submit one proposal covering multiple program components, they should ensure that the proposal is organized into sections that specifically address each component outlined in the RFP.
4.Will this ERA restructure include utility and/or internet assistance?
As of now, the new ERA restructuring does not include utility and/or internet assistance. However, it is possible that this may change in the future.
5.Can my organization use an existing case management team for the ERA Case management component?
Given the significant demand for case management services within our community, the case management component under the ERA structure is dedicated to establishing a new case management team to expand access to supportive services. As a result, ERA funding will not be used to fund an existing case management program.
