The HOME-ARP and ARPA funding will be provided as a grant to non-profit and/or for-profit developer(s) and must be used to develop Non-Congregate Shelter facilities in accordance with the (HUD) HOME-ARP program as described in HUD's CPD Notice 21-10. Non-profit agencies must provide evidence of their IRS 501 (c) (3) status with the Letter of Intent (LOI) and Application. For-profit entities must provide the applicable organization documents.

All applicants are urged to attend one of two Pre-Proposal Technical Assistance Meetings because of the complexities associated with this HOME-ARP program (see NOFA packet for details). The Pre-Proposal Technical Assistance Meetings will be held in person on:
  • Feb. 1 at 2 p.m.,, 2nd Floor West Conference Room, Busch Building, 840 Boonville Avenue
  • Feb. 6, 2023, at 2 p.m., 2nd Floor West Conference Room, Busch Building, 840 Boonville Avenue.

Upon acceptance of LOIs, full proposals will be accepted until noon Thursday, March 23 at the Planning and Development Office, 2nd Floor, Busch Municipal Building, 840 Boonville Avenue.

The City reserves the right to allocate less than the amount requested by any applicant and reserves the right to deny any or all applications. Applicants must show they have secured or have a high likelihood of securing operating funding for at least 10 years, as operating costs cannot be paid with HOME-ARP funds.
