Transportation for Individuals with Disabilities to COVID Testing Appointments
The Department for Aging and Independent Living (DAIL) and the Kentucky Transportation Department are partnering to assist individuals with disabilities to obtain transportation services for COVID testing appointments. 
Individuals with disabilities who need this service can contact the Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) at 877-925-0037 to learn more about how to access this service.
DAIL Commissioner Victoria Elridge has posted a video on YouTube explaining this new service, which will provide individuals who may not qualify for Medicaid the transportation they need to get to local, free, drive-thru testing sites.
Status of the FY 2020 CoC Funding Process
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has not released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the FY 2020 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. Traditionally, HUD holds a competitive application process each year around this time for renewal and new projects. Due to COVID-19, HUD is currently exploring alternative approaches to distributing FY 2020 CoC Program funds that would simplify the process, which may include only awarding funds to renewal projects without a competition.

Legislation was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives and is currently being considered by the U.S. Senate that would direct HUD to award funds through a renewal process only for projects awarded funding through the FY 2019 CoC Competition.

KHC will share status updates as they become available from HUD via eGram and will also notify current CoC grantees directly via email.
Very Important - Seasonal Flu
Below are two sets of documents that interconnect regarding the importance of the 2020-21 seasonal flu and SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), and the need for the seasonal flu vaccine, when medically appropriate. It is very important that local plans be put in place to appropriately address the seasonal flu within the community of homelessness in order to reduce the compounding effects of the seasonal flu and COVID-19.
Notice of Funds Available (NOFA): KHC Strategic Operating Grants
Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) is pleased to announce a funding application for modest operating grants, open to nonprofit partners across the Commonwealth. This is a fairly new approach for KHC, as in the past, requests for operating grants have been received and decided upon outside a formal application process.
The Strategic Operating Grants NOFA clarifies requirements and guidelines for funding. All applications must be submitted through KHC's online Universal Funding Application (UFA), a system that requires prior registration.  
The UFA for this NOFA will open August 24, 2020, and applications are due September 24, 2020. Awards will be announced in late October/early November 2020.
