Community Plan for Federal Funding
The Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) Community Plan 2014-2019 (pdf) includes the following components:
- Current Situation – baseline data about Red Deer’s current homeless population the community’s readiness to implement a Housing First approach.
- Planning & Reporting – describes the community plan process and links to other strategies and programs in the Red Deer.
- Priorities – how to invest the HPS funding to address homelessness in Red Deer.
Each year communities have the opportunity to update their HPS Community Plan for federal homelessness funding. This includes summarizing Red Deer’s current situation and progress made towards meeting the 2014-2015 priorities. There is also an opportunity to change the HPS funding priorities for 2015-2016, should there be a need in the community.
