Project Description: The Cincinnati/Hamilton County Continuum of Care for the Homeless, Inc. (CoC) is administering the HPRP Programs for Hamilton County and the City of Cincinnati. The CoC has subcontracted with the established community HMIS provider, The Partnership Center, Ltd. to provide all HMIS required activities. The local HMIS system, VESTA, has been reprogrammed to all HUD specifications for reporting including the new HMIS Data and Technical Standards as required for HPRP. VESTA has also been programmed for the required Quarterly Performance Report (QPR) and annual Performance Report (APR) as required by HUD for reporting on HPRP. All HPRP Prevention providers are entering information into one 'program' in VESTA, in real-time-- so no applicant could receive services from two separate agencies. HPRP staff is utilizing VESTA as both a case management tool and as a means for financial assistance requests. VESTA is programmed to meet the local HPRP program requirements for financial assistance requests such as receiving and storing scanned leases, eviction notices, disconnect notices, etc. Case workers are entering their case notes and services provided pertaining to housing stabilization into VESTA. The HPRP Coordinator offers oversight of the case management services and information entered in VESTA through biweekly peer review meetings and monthly supervision. During the quarter 246 persons were served with financial assistance, rental assistance, security deposit assistance and utility payments.
Jobs Summary: The position of HPRP Coordinator was created to run program. This is the only job created or retained to date (Total jobs reported: 1)
Project Status: Less Than 50% Completed
