SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Fiscal Year 2005 Housing Opportunities for People who are Homeless and Addicted to Alcohol Program was designed to provide supportive housing assistance to chronically homeless persons who have been living on the streets for at least three-hundred sixty-five (365) days over the last five (5) years and have a long term addiction to alcohol, otherwise known as serial inebriates. Clients served by these funds will have been living on the streets at the time of initial contact and will have no history of living in transitional or permanent housing over the last five years.

The competition was announced in the SuperNOFA published March 21, 2005 (70 FR 14135). The NOFA allowed for approximately $10,000,000 to award approximately ten two-year grants that averaged approximately $1,000,000 per award. Applications were rated and selected for funding on the basis of selection criteria contained in that Notice.

For the Fiscal Year 2005 competition, a total of $10,000,000 was awarded to 12 program providers nationwide.

Public Law 108-7, approved February 20, 2003 (111 Stat. 494) authorizes this two-year demonstration program. The Supportive Housing Program is authorized by Title IV, Subtitle C, of the Stewart B. McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento Act), 42 U.S.C. 11381.

In accordance with section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the names of grantees and amounts of awards in Appendix A to this document.
