A subcommittee consisting of Julie Almond, Denise Fortin, and Lynne Olsen-Vieira met on Tuesday 1/21/14 to review and rank the renewal projects that will be part of the Fall River CoC application this year.

After careful thought and consideration, the subcommittee formulated the ranking, of the 12 programs for the CoC application that you find below.  In reaching a decision, the subcommittee took into consideration the importance of several factors: provision of permanent housing; provision of housing to the often underserved specialty populations of young adults and veterans; and review of programmatic performance measures.

The recommendation committee is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the review process.
