Applications will be accepted until October 15, 2017 and evaluated based on MHP's current capacity building priorities. MHP has established specific criteria on which applications will be scored including; community demographic, targeted populations, demonstrated need for the project, and project readiness. Preference will be given to Native communities, and to communities that are located or serving populations in community development target areas, high risk foreclosure areas, HUD Promise Zones and/or HUD Preferred Sustainability Status Communities.
Within 30 days of receiving the application and any accompanying documents, MHP will complete its review, determine MHP's level of investment and contact the applicant. If selected, MHP will enter into written memorandum of understanding outlining both MHP's and the applicant's responsibilities and contributions.
