e-snaps FAQ

In past CoC Program Competitions, HUD only permitted new rapid rehousing (RRH) projects to serve individuals and families who were residing on the streets or in emergency shelters, or who were fleeing domestic violence. Can RRH projects use FY 2017 CoC Program funds to serve participants coming from locations other than these?
