COVINGTON, Ky. (FOX19) - The City of Covington is looking for proposals from agencies that provide homeless assistance to help it spend up to $300,000.

“Qualified and experienced” non-profit agencies that work with the homeless have until 4 p.m. Nov. 25 to submit proposals to the City, according to the City’s formal notice of funding availability (NOFA).

The programs must be in response to COVID-19 and can include programs such as emergency, temporary, or permanent housing, supply food and/or meals, health services, housing services and other supportive services.

“In this time of the coronavirus and its impact on the daily lives of so many people, the City is working to direct the federal funds it’s received to programs, services, businesses, and populations that most need it,” Mayor Joe Meyer said in a news release. “We’re doing our part to help the vulnerable.”

All proposals must benefit low- to moderate-income people, according to federal rules, and the funds must be utilized in Covington.
