Homeless Trust Policies and Procedures, Standards and Forms
Public Comment on the Orders of Priority for Move-Up Preferences
(Published 11/9/2018) The Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust is issuing a public comment on their draft procedures guiding the orders of priority for referrals to move-up preferences. Move-up preferences create affordable housing options for disabled, formerly homeless persons exiting HUD Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) when they no longer need the intensive support services provided by the PSH program.
A Joint Housing and Services Development Committee will convene to review the policy on Friday, November 16, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. on the first floor of the Miami-Dade Public Library at 101 W. Flagler St., Miami, FL.
Any questions or comments may be directed to Manuel.Sarria@miamidade.gov

The Trust has developed and implemented Standards of Care that are designed to set minimum standards of housing and service delivery for homeless persons. This ensures the health, safety and well-being of homeless persons, provides ease of entry into the system, and also provides for higher coordination among the service provider community. All provider agencies under contract with the Trust must comply with these Standards of Care.
- Emergency Shelter
- Rapid Rehousing
- Permanent Supportive Housing
- Housing First
- Policies and Procedures
Providers not funded by the Trust are asked to also consider and adopt these Standards of Care.
The Homeless Trust subscribes to a Coordinated Outreach, Assessment and Placement process. Homeless outreach is provided on the street daily, typically by two-member teams, in a non-aggressive fashion, and as a result of service requests from homeless persons, social service agencies, religious organizations, medical facilities and other institutions.
Mobile outreach teams stationed throughout Miami-Dade County respond to service requests and regularly visit areas known to be frequented by homeless persons and/or identified through a semi-annual homeless count.
Individuals and families are placed based on verification of homelessness, level of vulnerability, and availability of beds and / or housing.
Not-for-profit housing and services providers are selected through a competitive funding process, whether it is state, federal or local funding. All agencies must submit an application/proposal based on the criteria/categories that are outlined in the Request for Applications or Request for Proposals.
A selection committee of professionals is appointed by the County Mayor to review and score the applications received. The selection committee determines, based on the scoring criteria, which proposers will be recommended for funding.
Providers interested in learning more about Trust meetings, news & events, including funding opportunities, should contact Board Support Specialist Margarita Olano at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Fri Nov 9, 2018 1:06:23 PM
