In Partnership with the Funder's Collaborative, LAHSA is pleased to release The Organization Capacity Building Technical Assistance Application.
Eligibility & Overview
All nonprofit homeless service providers participating in the LA County Coordinated Entry System (CES) are eligible to apply. Providers do not need to operate a CES contract to be eligible.
Applications for capacity building technical assistance will be accepted on a rolling basis, contingent on fund availability. Applications must be submitted by the first of the month for review. Review of applications will be completed within 30 days of submission. Applicants will be made aware of selection decisions within 30 days of the close of the review period.
Applications for capacity building technical assistance will focus on enhancements to operational infrastructure, in the areas of operational management, leadership development, program administration, information technologies, office space, and professional services.
Applicants may request assistance with scoping application requests by emailing questions to email@example.com.
Capacity Building Technical Assistance Options
To best suit the unique needs of providers, two (2) options for capacity building technical assistance are available.
Option A: Organization Capacity Needs Assessment Requests
This option is best suited for organizations that have not yet assessed internal capacity needs, and would like to receive a formal assessment.
Agencies that request an assessment through this option will be pre-qualified to receive funding for implementation related to consultant recommendations upon completion of the assessment, and will not need to re-apply.
Option B: Implementation Requests
This option is best suited for organizations that have already identified a technical assistance project resulting from a recent comprehensive capacity needs assessment or other work with a consultant within the past three (3) years.
Please submit the complete application and all supporting documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must be submitted by the first of the month to adhere to submission, review, and approval timelines.
For an application to be considered complete, all signatures must be physical. No electronic signatures will be accepted.
