Cal. Code Regs. Tit. 25, § 7967 - Grant Selection Process

(a) A grant selection process shall involve eligible applications received by a DLB or the Department in response to the applicable NOFA.
(b) Each of the following selection criteria shall be specified in the Statewide NOFA:
(1) The applicant's capability of achieving the activities and results proposed in the application. An applicant's capability will be evaluated based on such items as its history of providing client housing; organizational structure and staffing; experience of establishing, administering, and successfully completing homeless programs; experience of public and private fundraising and resource development; established financial management systems; financial stability and solvency; and demonstrated ability and readiness for accomplishing its proposed activities.
(2) The impact and effectiveness of the client housing provided and proposed to be provided by the applicant. Impact and effectiveness will be evaluated based on such items as the range and quality of client housing provided, including the self-sufficiency development services provided with transitional housing; how the proposed activity(ies) address community needs; and the demonstrated effectiveness of the applicants' current and proposed programs to move homeless persons into a self-supporting environment.
(3) The cost-efficiency of the proposed use of grant funds for providing client housing. Cost efficiency will be evaluated based on such items as the type and amount of client housing provided compared to the project budget; the demonstrated availability of other financial resources besides EHAP to support achievement of the proposed activity(ies); the need for EHAP funds; leveraging of EHAP with other funds; non-duplication of services; and coordination with other organizations.
(c) Each of the following selection criteria shall be specified in the regional NOFA:
(1) The applicant's capability of achieving the activities and results proposed in the application;
(2) The impact and effectiveness of the client housing provided and to be provided by the applicant;
(3) The cost-efficiency of the proposed use of grant funds for providing client housing;
(4) The extent to which the local needs, goals and priorities identified in the LESS are met and achieved, respectively, by the applicant's proposed activities; and
(5) Any additional criteria as identified in the LESS approved by the Department pursuant to section 7956.
(d) The Department or DLB, respectively, shall provide in the NOFA the subcriteria and the point system to be used for selecting grantees for awards from that allocation.
(e) Applications shall be individually rated and then ranked in descending order. Funds will be awarded to eligible applicants in each region in descending rank order for the amount requested in the corresponding eligible application, until the remaining funds are insufficient to fully fund the next highest ranked application(s). Then,
(1) The next highest rated and ranked unfunded application following the full funding of the highest rated and ranked applications shall be partially funded if the funded activities can be adequately completed with the EHAP funds awarded.
(2) In the event of a tie for applicants in the lowest-ranked position to be funded, the Department or DLB, as applicable, will review the tied applications again and break the tie before continuing the award process.
(f) Each application submitted to a DLB for a capital development grant shall be evaluated by an RTE, which shall:
(1) Determine whether the application is feasible, pursuant to a competent, comprehensive evaluation pursuant to the standards provided in subsection 7966(i); and
(2) Provide a written and certified summary of its evaluation and determination, and append this to the application.
(g) A DLB shall make the final rating and ranking of eligible applications in sufficient time to allow for appeals prior to the date the DLB transmits the subsequent initial grant selections to the Department for confirmation.
(h) A DLB shall transmit the initial grant selections to the Department for confirmation no later than 150 days after the date the LESSes are due for the annual allocations from which the selections were made. Up to a 30-day extension of the deadline may be granted by the Department upon written request by the DLB for circumstances beyond DLB control.
