New! Department of Housing and Urban Development: FY 2018 Continuum of Care Program
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is seeking applications for its Continuum of Care (CoC) Program that provides funding to promote a community-wide commitment to ending homelessness. The CoC Program funds nonprofit providers, states, and local governments in their efforts to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness. Furthermore, CoC funding promotes access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs for homelessness while optimizing self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness. To be eligible for the CoC Program competition, applicants must be nonprofit organizations, states, local governments, instrumentalities of state or local governments, or public housing agencies without limitation or exclusion. For-profit entities are not eligible to apply for CoC Program grants or be sub-recipients of these grant funds. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for or receive awards made under this announcement. HUD expects to make 8,000 awards, with a total funding of $21 million. Individual grants will range from $2,500 to $5 million. Applications are due September 18, 2018 and must be submitted through HUD’s e-SNAPs application system.
The Domestic Violence and Housing Technical Assistance Consortium (DVHTAC) is hosting a series of webinars for CoC grant applicants. The first webinar called A Primer on HUD's CoC Program Competition Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA): Review of the FY18 Application, HUD Priorities, and Opportunities for DV/SA Providers is on July 18, 2018, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm ET.
