In the calendar year 2018, the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) in conjunction with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh (FHLBank Pittsburgh), released the first "Home4Good" funding RFP. The goal of this funding source is to "provide grants to address systemic gaps in support and services and help make homelessness in the Commonwealth rare, brief, and non-reoccurring." This flexible funding stream is available again in 2021. 

Local Marketing, Solicitation & Review of Projects

The FHLBank Pittsburgh and PHFA requested the participation of Continuums of Care (CoC's) in Pennsylvania to assist in the local marketing, solicitation, and review of projects for Home4Good. The York City/County CoC (also known as the York County Coalition on Homelessness) discussed this opportunity, and the Coalition committed to working with PHFA on June 2, 2021 . On July 19, 2021 the York County Planning Commission (as the Lead Agency for Continuum of Care activities) submitted the CoC's Commitment Letter to participate in this process, to PHFA.
