Can behind on bills include child care expenses.
Kate Jakuta
38:46
Is there a certain portion of the caseload that should be in each tier? How many of the 30 clients per tier?
Kate Jakuta
39:29
Are the amounts in Tier 2 and 3 the maximum amount of client assistance they can receive? Ex: Tier 3 clients cannot receive any more than $1,350?
Alli Holstrom
41:13
Are there expectations for how the required matching funds will be used in the budget? To Kate's question, I assume that those restrictions are related to how UWCM funds are spent only, correct?
Kate Jakuta
41:51
How many families need to be enrolled in the second half of FY21? Is it half the total caseload (i.e. 15 families)?
Kate Jakuta
42:09
Does the case manager need to determine at intake what tier a client is in (tier 1, 2, or 3)? If the clients’ needs change, can their tier change? For example, if they present as tier 1 initially, but then need more support and should be moved to a tier 2 or 3. Or can the person’s tier be determined later (such as when they are ready to exit)?
Alicia Hamilton
42:12
How is a family determined to be capable of self-sufficiency?
Jordan Villalobos
42:19
We had UWCM funds for the Family Stability program for years and then no longer received funding. Are we able to apply again (1 year off) or should we wait longer? Thank you!
Alicia Hamilton
42:40
How does the presence of substance abuse or mental illness affect eligibility?
Kate Jakuta
42:42
Is the case management requirement still to meet with families twice a month, regardless of the tier? Can you especially clarify this for Tier 2?
Nette Stokes
42:43
What are the locations? I think that slide got passed over or I missed it.
Broken Wall Community Church
42:58
Is this commitment only for FY2021?
Kate Jakuta

What is a family needs more than $1,350?
Kate Jakuta

Broken Wall Community Church
44:12
May we have a copy of this PPT?
Jackie
44:16
What is the grant cycle? When would funds be available?
Kate Jakuta
44:37
Do the terms “site” and “program” refer to a physical location, or to a case manager?
Alicia Hamilton
44:46
If different organizations in the same county apply, can they each focus on different tiers? How are organizations selected?
Kate Jakuta
45:03
What are the guidelines or best practices for screening a client for tier 1, 2, or 3?
Kate Jakuta
45:20
Is $650 the maximum amount of financial assistance a family can receive in Tier 2? This seems like a very low amount (less than a month of rent). It seems that someone would have to be barely behind on their bills at all to qualify for Tier 2 (ex: a couple weeks behind on their rent, or 2-3 months on BGE). Can you clarify what type of situations someone would be in to qualify for Tier 2?
Nette Stokes
55:08
What if the site location is closed dued to COVID temporarily? Will allowances be made.
Renee
55:36
Will you consider other areas/communities outside of those listed on your priority list, if they meet the ALICE and other criteria?

Billy Humphrey
58:49
Can one organization apply for funding in two jurisdictions?
Joan Drebing
01:01:08
If we have other financial assistance for eviction prevention services can we use it in this program?
Broken Wall Community Church
01:04:17
Historically, has it been difficult to find/secure Tier 1 participants?
Pat Ross
01:05:17
Are agencies limited to one login for the portal?
Broken Wall Community Church
01:06:09
With Howard, Harford, and Caroll Counties allotted one each, does that mean the max of new grants will be 6?
Heather Rounds
01:06:09
can you show where to download the budget in the portal?
Alli Holstrom
01:23:00
Thanks Scott!
Jordan Villalobos
01:23:03
Can these funds be used to support a current permanent housing program that serves clients with families? For example if we have a family in a subsidy program, but is falling behind due to unforeseen costs, etc.
Jordan Villalobos
01:25:46
thank you! :)
Alli Holstrom
01:25:51
When we complete reporting in Community Force are we going to break down demographics and/or performance data by Tier?
ltalis
01:35:25
