Appeal Review 

To assure the ability of the TPCH Continuum of Care Board and the Collaborative Applicant to take effective action, appeals to decisions made by the Independent Review Panel will be submitted to the Collaborative Applicant using the Appeals Form.  The Collaborative Applicant will review the appeal and make an initial determination of appeal eligibility based on the eligible appeals described above.  Appeals that do not appear to meet the definition of Eligible Appeals above will be marked ineligible by the Collaborative Applicant and forwarded to the non-conflicted officers of the TPCH Board for final determination of eligibility.  Appeals confirmed to be ineligible will not be forwarded to or considered by the TPCH Board.

As described in the TPCH FY 2021 Continuum of Care Program Overview, Instructions, and Process document, the TPCH CoC Board will review all eligible appeals at its November 9, 2021 meeting and may adjust rating tool scores and/or project rankings, if appropriate.  Appellants will be notified of the results of their appeal no later than November 11, 2021.  The decisions of the TPCH CoC  Board are final.

This form cannot be saved and must be completed in one sitting.  Applicants are encouraged to review each section of the appeal, prepare their responses in a separate document, and then submit once all information is collected.
