FY 2023 Non-Congregate Emergency Shelter Competition

The City Fiscal Year 2023 Non-Congregate Emergency Shelter Competition is now open.

The Mayor’s Office of Homeless Services (MOHS) is requesting project proposals from qualified non-profit organizations that have the capacity to operate non-congregate shelter(s) and provide supportive services at non-congregate shelter facilities owned by the City of Baltimore. The applicants must demonstrate the experience and capacity to operate a welcoming, low-barrier, non-congregate emergency shelter that serves adult individuals experiencing homelessness in Baltimore City. While the exact amount of available funding has not yet been confirmed, MOHS anticipates funding will be made available through the City’s General Funds.

Providers may submit more than one application for program(s) and be considered for multiple eligible sources of funding that are administered by MOHS.

MOHS is seeking proposals to serve the following target populations:

1. Non-Congregate Shelter for 135 single adult men

2. Non-Congregate Shelter for 145 single adult women

Note that these projects will be operated in two separate non-congregate shelter facilities, although providers may submit more than one application if proposing to serve two separate programs.

Submission deadline is May 23, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Selected projects will start operations by July 1, 2022, and each project will be awarded a one-year contract form July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023.
