Would I need to register each residence if I have multiple homes?
Paul Krupski
53:29
Hi Brett. Yes, you need to register every residence individually on the registry. Thank you.
Brett Knutson
53:55
Thank you!
Paul Krupski
54:57
Hi Ruthie. There is no set time period DHS can guarantee you will hear back on an application. It depends on a number of factors. That said. It should be within a 30 day period that you hear back from DHS, but it could be much sooner. Thank you.
Ruthie McGinnis
55:31
Thank you for the answer!
Brenda Konkel
56:25
To contact Dane County CoC you can contact our staff person Torrie - TKoppMueller@cityofmadison.com or myself brenda@machonehealth.org. I'm the President of the Board of the Dane County Homeless Services Consortium Board
Ruthie McGinnis
58:13
Who is the point of contact for Racine County's CoC? Is HMIS going to be used to track homelessness for the people who need the vouchers?
Teresa Reinders
58:51
Racine CoC is Teresa Reinders - treinders@haloinc.org
Julie McDermid
59:15
Will applicants need to be in the Coordinated Entry system in order to receive a voucher?
Eugene Olson Jr
01:04:07
Who are the CoC or LC POC for Northwest, WI counties?
Brenda Konkel
01:04:32
Is there going to be the requirement that you “live" in the county (last address) is in the county of where they get assistance? i.e. If the last address was Portage County but they have been homeless in Dane County for a year and a half, will they qualify in Dane County or do they need to go back to Portage county?
Brenda Konkel
01:05:14
Here's the contact info for CoCs from HUD - https://www.hud.gov/states/wisconsin/working/cpd/coccontacts
Ivy Sutek
01:11:16
Can you post the link to the program manual? I don't see this header on the DEHCR website.
Ruthie McGinnis
01:11:40
How do we get our credentials for HMIS logins?
Brenda Konkel
01:12:56
YAY!!!!
Stephena Smith
01:12:57
What if more than one agency within the local CoC applies?
Shannon Harring
01:13:44
Does a person being on DOC supervision impact their eligibility?
Megan Edwards
01:14:14
Great, thank you!
Nikki Gerhard
01:14:14
could a municipality apply and serve as the lead agency with subrecipients? opposite- can agencies apply directly with multiple agencies of the same local COC being recipients?
Sarah Lim
01:15:38
Any habitability standards requirement for recovery residence?
Sarah Lim
01:15:56
Are there going to be tenant rights for the recovery residence? Does the client have a lease or just program agreement?
Bonnie Liss
01:16:53
If a non-profit housing facility has three separate building residences, do all three have to be on the registry?
Sarah Lim
01:16:54
Is the expectation a CoC member homeless services agency serve as a centralized referral taking entity (similar to Coordinated Entry) and work with subrecipients who provide recovery residences in the area?
Sarah Lim
01:18:11
Is your expectation that homeless services providers open up new recovery residence beds? Or CoC relies on existing sober living/recovery residence provided by behavioral health agencies?
Sarah Lim
01:18:32
What is the reasoning behind in making services not eligible expense? How do you expect services would be leveraged?
Sarah Lim
01:19:50
Where can we find the current list of recovery residence in our CoC?
Sarah Lim
01:24:34
Is the hub agency expected to do monitoring of recovery residence they are working with? Client files, etc?
Stacy Hilde
01:25:29
RE: Racine - Your local Probation/DOC will often know if there are any existing Recovery Residences
Emily Bourne
01:25:43
Link to the list of DHS recognized recovery residences: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/guide/recovresdir.pdf
Brenda Konkel
01:25:44
Can you be the hub (with admin dollars) but have not units and only coordinate on behalf of the CoC with the recovery houses?
Bonnie Liss
01:26:17
Some of our residents come in funded by the county for a period of time (usually up to three months.) Often after that period the residents are unable to stay because of no/little income. Would they then be able to use the recovery funds to stay?
Brenda Konkel
01:26:31
Can the units be a tiny house?
Sarah Lim
01:27:06
Who will be making payments to the recovery residence? Does the hub agency pay them?
Christma Rusch
01:28:31
We have many that are being released from jail, treatment, and prison. HUD rules say they can only be there for 90 days or less and homeless before. What if they are at risk if they do not come by us?
Emily Bourne
01:29:27

Sarah Lim
01:31:11
Does the recovery residences have to be project based (building based)? Can it be scattered site?
Teresa Reinders
01:32:36
@Stacy Hilde - thank you.
Beth Snyder
01:33:05
how do we update our registry info
Stacy Hilde
01:33:44
How does the HUB get paid?
Brenda Konkel
01:34:24
@ sarah I - thanks for the clarification!
Stacy Hilde
01:36:15
Where can we get further clarification about imminent risk of homelessness
Eugene Olson Jr
01:36:25
lisa.kucharski@wisconsin.gov is the WI DOC/DCC/Region 2 (Racine, Kenosha, Walworth) county Program and Policy Analyst-Advanced/Purchase of Offender Goods and Services who can help with local resources for persons on DOC supervision in these counties.
Sarah Lim
01:36:41
( I would like to go over the scenario for our CoC. Too long to type. I am raising my hand.)
Stacy Hilde
01:46:34
That's not quite true Paul - there are many levels of RR's according to NARR
Stacy Hilde
01:47:34

Christma Rusch
01:47:36
The strongest application will automatically become the hub? Does this mean the hub is then in charge of coordinated entry for all entities?
Dan HAAK
01:47:45
Some residences include time meeting with a recovery coach, some residences include that, some bill for it separately
Christma Rusch
01:48:58
A daily rate....for a level 3 recovery housing includes 24 hour recovery support.
Stacy Hilde
01:51:07
I mean does the HUB get paid for administering?
Sarah Lim
01:51:15
Recovery residence will ask for payment up front. Can that be paid by HUD and then requested to the State?
Sarah Lim
01:53:14
SRO FMR is 75% of the efficiency FMR, correct?
Brenda Konkel
01:53:48
Does anyone know if this could be matching funds for the unsheltered NOFO? (I"m guessing that takes more research)
Brett Knutson
01:53:59
Are there any limitations relating to programming participants can be involved in? I have programming paid for by other state, federal and private grants.
Brenda Konkel
01:57:43
I gotta go - thanks all!!!!!
Sarah Lim
01:57:57
Emily, Dane CoC would also like to know if it can be matched to unsheltered NOFO as well! That was a great question!
Bonnie Liss
01:58:40
Will you make the power point presentations available by separate email?
Brett Knutson
01:58:47
Thank you!
Sarah Lim
01:58:59
(Ah, this grant award notice is 11/7, and the unsheltered NOFO is due before that. So probably won't work.)
