Title: Section 800.4 - Community eligibility.

800.4 Community eligibility. (a) Projects requesting funding pursuant to this Part shall be approved in neighborhoods or communities determined by the department to be in need of new or expanded housing accommodations for homeless persons. Such determination shall be based on lack of or imminent loss of such housing and the need for it as shown by the presence of a local population of such persons. Such indices as the loss of low-income or single-room occupancy housing units, the number of low-income single persons or families requiring supportive services, or other factors as determined by the commissioner shall be provided by the applicant and may be taken into account in rendering such a judgment.

(b) An applicant shall provide documentary evidence satisfactory to the department of opportunity for community review and comment both for the development of a homeless project in the community, and for the sponsorship and execution of such a project by the applicant, within 30 days of application.
