Project Ranking Results
The Anne Arundel and Annapolis Coalition to End Homelessness (MD-503 CoC) used the attached (below) Reallocation Policies, effective July 2017, and Review/Ranking Criteria for Renewal and New Projects (Review/Ranking Criteria), effective September 1, 2017 and distributed to over 100 members of the MD-503 CoC mailing list and posted on this website. These procedures updated and replaced earlier versions of re-allocation policies and review/ranking criteria outlined in the Anne Arundel and Annapolis Coalition to End Homelessness (MD-503 CoC) policy manual (available upon request).
The following projects were evaluated and ranked based on approved Review/Ranking Criteria. The MD-503’s Continuum of Care Reallocation policy uses a point scale to review and rank renewal projects. Projects scoring below 70 points are considered to be low performing and the project renewal funds are at risk of reallocation during the FY2017 Continuum of Care competition. No renewal projects scored below a score of 70 during the FY2017 Continuum of Care competition, therefore, no project was reallocated.
