Application Materials

​OHCS will maintain and update this section weekly to maintain an accurate reflection of funding availability and competition to assist applicants in making an informed decision about their application submissions.

​Note: Pending pre-applications and applications that have not yet been reviewed are categorized by self-reporting of eligibility for the LIFT Set-Aside and LIFT Supplemental funding.  Categories are not duplicative, meaning an application will be counted in only one of the below rows.  Pre-Applications and Application should be summed when considering interest expressed but not awarded to date.

Because this is not a competitive NOFA, OHCS staff can provide more one-on-one assistance to support partners who are considering applying. Please reach out to with any questions.
