As outlined in the BHCIP/CCE Program Update (1/5/22), one of the state priorities for the BHCIP/CCE funding is to leverage historic state investments in housing and homelessness. That said, leveraging funding does not mean supplanting or “double-dipping” in funds. Projects that braid funding are encouraged, so long as the funding sources complement each other, and the specific requirements of each funding source are met. It is the applicant’s responsibility to refer to and review any other relevant housing funds to confirm the eligible use of those funding streams.
