If we are a for-profit entity can we respond to the RFP alongside a non-profit fiscal sponsor/agent?
Your Name
01:01:36
Can this program be used to assist families enrolled in another organization's RRH or diversion/prevention program?
Shirene Starn Tapyrik
01:05:21
Perter and Aubre- If an agency is a the grantee of the RRH program, shouldn't they be at arms length from assisting the same households? If not, would that not have an inherent conflict of interest?
Gretchen Gregory
01:05:28
Is there a maximum amount of funding that's allowed per family?
Katherine Robbins
01:06:14
Does the program administrator need to be a specific staff position or have specific credentials/experience (financial or otherwise)?

Can you tell us more about the required HMIS reporting?

01:20:08
What about agency previously providing RRH, but no longer?
Kate Lodge
01:21:19
If families are "enrolled" in diversion does it require they are HUD defined as literally homeless?
Sara Krane
01:21:28
Is there anything the families can't use the funds for?
Kate Lodge
01:22:46
Thanks
Patricia Jordan
01:23:19
Is receipts required to be turned in?
Your Name
01:23:38
Can a savings plan be a requirement for families wanting assistance? Can the agency require participating families to establish saving accounts with a portion of these funds?
Katherine Robbins
01:25:41
Requiring a savings account would impose a barrier to these funds, I would think. These funds are meant to help client needs, not make more barriers before assisting those needs.
Your Name
01:29:57
Who will have access to the families financial transactions that use the cards?
Leora Donley
01:32:19
Will families be able to purchase things like cigarettes or alcohol with this card?
Gretchen Gregory
01:32:35
I'm confused. So these funds can be used for more stuff than just housing? I read the RFP as housing only.
Stacy Slack
01:33:16
So, can you exclude items such as alcohol or nicotine products?

Aubre Jones (she/her)
01:41:23
Any merchant that takes mastercard
Deb Tegtmeyer
01:42:26
And some merchants charge extra for using a credit card.
Lisa Seeden
01:42:47
Is this only for current RRH agencies to apply?
Timberly Robinson
01:42:53
Are the settings on the mastercards customizable to each individual card or is there a standard setting across the entire program?
Stacy Slack
01:43:01
is there an expiration date on the cards?
Mitch Wasserman
01:45:09
I'd like to know if this would be taxable income and how it will affect their benefits.
Lisa Seeden
01:46:32
So when I received this rfp I understood it was open to all nonprofitsAfter this training I am confused It seems I am hearing your only entertaining RRH contracted agencies
