The Community and Business Development Department of the City of Winston-Salem is accepting proposals for Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance grants. Both renewal and first-time funding proposals will be considered. Proposals must be submitted to the City by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 6, 2014. The purpose of HUD Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs is to reduce the incidence of homelessness in communities by assisting homeless individuals and families to move to self-sufficiency and permanent housing. The City of Winston-Salem, in cooperation with the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Council on Services for the Homeless and its member agencies, coordinates annual Continuum of Care submissions.
