  4. 4. Substantial Amendment to Cook Countys Consolidated Plan 2008 Action Plan for the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) l. Check the process(es) that the grantee plans to use to select subgrantees. Note that a subgrantee is defined as the orgarlzation to which the grantee provides HPRP funds. ffi Competitive Process I Formula Allocation X Other (Specify: Dirçct Allocarion See #3. below for further explanation. 2. Briefly describe the process(es) indicated in question I above (limit 250 words). Response: Cook County intends to make grant awards to subrecipents through an R-FP Process. However, Cook County also reserves the right to make direct grants to current subrecipients of ESG, CDBG and or HOME funds, independent of and outside of the RFP process. 3. Briefly describe the process the grantee plans to use, once HUD signs the grant agreement, to allocate funds available to subgrantees by September 30, 2009, as required by the HPRP Notice (limit 250 words). Response: Cook County will use an RFP process for the purposes of identiffing and selecting subrecipients. Cook County may elect to award funds directly to one or more of Cook County existing subgrantees, independent of the RFP Process. Additionally, Cook County may utilize a portion of the HPRP funds to administer one or more of the eligible activities in-house. Cook County plans to have all subrecipient agreements executed by September 18, 2009. 4. Describe the grantees plan for ensuring the effective and timely use of HPRP grant funds on eligible activities, as outlined in the HPRP Notice. Include a description of how the grantee plans to oversee and monitor the adr,ninistration and use of its own HPRP funds, as well as those used by its subgrantees (limit 500 words). Response: With the exception of the five percent (5%) reservation of administrative costs, Cook County plans to provide grants to subrecipients for the remaining portion of the HPRP grant funds. Notwithstanding foregoing provision, Cook County reserves the right to perform one or more of the eligible activities in- house. Cook County has traditionally funded subrecipients through its Emergency Shelter Grants Program and the CDBG. Cook County believes that it has an adequate pool of agencies and other resources within Cook County to discuss use of the HPRP grant funds. Cook County plans to have various meetings with existing and potential parhrers throughout the County, to ensure effective and timely use of the HPRP grturLt ñ¡nds. Cook County has also taken steps towards creating a centralized communications network, to help connect subrecipients and Program beneficiaries with HPRP grant funds. Cook County will designate both4 HUD-40119
  5. 5. Substantial Amendment to Cook Countyos Consolidated Plan 2008 Action Plan for the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) administrative and accounting staff to oversee and monitor the administration and use of its own HPRP funds. Additionally, Cook County, plans to integrate the HPRP into its existing process, which includes a data base management system to monitor Program activity and reporting.D. Collaboration 1. Briefly describe how the grantee plans to collaborate with the local agencies that can serve similar target populations, which received funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 from other Federal agencies, including the U.S. Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Horneland Security, and Labor (limit 250 words). Response: Cook County will continue to work with the homelessness prevention community, other participating jwisdictions as well as other local agencies to ensure an effective use of the grant funds. Cook County has been in discussions with the legal community, the Continuum(s) of Care, and other grantees. Cook County has been strategizing with these groups for the best use of the HPRP grant funds. Additionally, Cook Countys Department of Planning and Development has been working with other intergovenmental agencies of Cook County (i.e., the Presidents Office of Employment and Training, etc.). Through these internal and external collaborations, we will be able to maximize the use of the FIPRP grant funds and avoid duplication of services. A key issue that continues to surface around homelessness prevention is the need to have a centralized method of communication to facilitate the flow of information and serviees to Progtam beneficiaries. Cook Counfj believes that a Homelessness Prevention Call Center will address this need. Cook County plans to utilize a portion of the HPRP firnds to establish a Call Center for homclessness prevention within the five regional areas of suburban Cook County. The Program will benefit eligible IIPRP beneficiaries. Call Center workers will be able to quickly ¿Nsess the needs of Program beneficiaries, make referrals and transfer calls to the appropriate agencies (governmental, non-profit, etc.). Through a centralized point of communication, Cook County will enable the efficient channeling of resources to Program beneficiaries for the prevention of homelessness. Cook County plans to have the Call Center operational by October 15, 2009. 2. Briefly describe how the grantee plans to collaborate with appropriate Continuum(s) of Care and mainstream resources regarding HPRP activities (limit 250 words). Response: Cook County has and will participate in comrnunity discussions with the Continuum(s) of Care and mainstream resorrces regarding HPRP activities. Cook County has already begun a dialog with such groups. On March 23,2009, members of the Cook County staff attended an initial HPRP meeting, hosted by the HUD-40119

The meeting, facilitated by HUD and the Corporation for Supportive Housing, included a discussion of the HPRP guidelines. On April 9, 2009, members of the Cook County staff attended a subsequent HPRP meeting. The meeting, hosted.by the City of Berwyn, was attended by various non-profit groups, member of the Continuum(s) of Care, and other Entitlement community representatives. Cook County will build upon its existing relationships with the Continuum(s) of Care, and will work to link the existing homelessness prevention network with other communitv resources. 3. Briefly describe how HPRP grant funds for financial assistance and housing relocation/stabilizationservices will be used in amarTnet that is consistent with the grantees Consolidated Plan (limit 250 words). Response: Cook Countys Consolidated and Annual Action Plan identifies three key objectives: (l)to ensure decent and affordable housing; (2) to end homelessness in suburban Cook County; and (3) to establish and maintain a suitable living environment for its citizens and expand economic opportunities. Cook County will utilize the FI?RP funds to expand existing services related to financial assistance and relocation/stabilization services. Cook County will be able to increase the level and types (rent, utilities, moving expenses, security deposits, storage fees, emergency shelter, etc.) of financial assistance to families, through subsidies. Additionally, Cook County will utilize the funds to provide grants to subrecipients in order to ensure that the necessary wraparound services are provided to Program beneficiaries. The additional funding will also be utilized to enable intensive case management, credit repair, legal assistance, mitigation, housing search and placement, outreach and engagement (including the creation of a rapid response system), as well as any other activity allowable under the HPRP.E.
