In order to attempt to reduce NHAP grant management and administrative burden, NHAP received approval from HUD to adopt a two-year funding cycle in 2003. The first year of this two-year grant cycle involves a competitive application process that is open to any eligible applicant. The second year is a renewal application process and is only open competitively to exiting recipients in good standing.
NHAP funding available for FY 2015-16 represented the second year of the grant cycle; therefore was only open to exiting recipients in good standing.
NHAP funding for Region 6, which encompasses the City of Lincoln, is managed through the City of Lincoln Urban Development. Agencies providing services in Lincoln do not apply through DHHS for the NHAP funds as the application process will be at a later date through the City of Lincoln Urban Development Office.
