South Dakota Housing Development Authority (SDHDA) is a nonprofit housing finance agency with a mission to provide decent, safe and affordable housing to South Dakotans. On any given night over 950 people are homeless in South Dakota. Both hidden and in plain sight, many families and individuals struggle to survive every day. South Dakota Housing for the Homeless Consortium (SDHHC) is leading the state of South Dakota’s homeless work and the Coordinated Entry System (CES). The CES Project Manager is a critical leader in our effort to reduce homelessness in South Dakota. The Project Manager will work closely with SDHDA, members of SDHHC, funders, and community partners to develop and implement Coordinated Entry. Coordinated Entry links people experiencing homelessness to housing programs and services across South Dakota. CES is a key innovation in reducing homelessness and the importance of this strategy has been underscored by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) setting requirements for communities to establish a coordinated engagement system.
SDHDA is seeking proposals for the Coordinated Entry System Project Manager. Proposals must be received by no later than 5:00 PM CT, November 20, 2017, addressed to Lorraine Polak, Director of Rental Housing Development, SDHDA, PO Box 1237, Pierre, SD 57501; email@example.com.
