Any network member in good standing for the past year can apply for this grant, but MSHDA does have some rules on funding that were not clearly in their Notice of Funding Availability. First, MSHDA will not fund any shelter programs that did not receive funding during the previous grant cycle. Secondly, the HARA is the only agency that can apply for prevention and RRH. Thirdly, billed outreach activities can only be street outreach to unsheltered clients.
