Q

The FY 2018 NOFA states that we are required to submit the renewal projects that make up a consolidated project individually and then submit a consolidated project. Why are we required to submit multiple projects for the consolidation purpose?

A

The multiple project application submission process protects project applicants and CoCs from losing funding if HUD determines a consolidated project application is not eligible (e.g., the consolidated project application includes more than one component type or one of the projects has unresolved monitoring findings). Therefore, if the project applicant submits a consolidated project, it must also submit the individual renewal projects.

CoCs will rank each individual renewal projects with a unique rank number and then rank consolidated project applications with one of the individual project's rank numbers. For example, if a project applicant submits a consolidated PH-PSH project application that combines two individual PH-PSH projects, it must also submit the two individual PH-PSH projects separately. If the CoC selects the two individual renewal project applications in the local CoC competition for submission to HUD, the CoC will rank the two individual renewal projects with unique rank numbers (e.g., 'Project B' #2 and 'Project D' #4) and then rank the consolidated project with either rank #2 or rank #4 on the Renewal Project Listing. The letter 'C' will precede the rank number to indicate to HUD that 'C + rank number' is the fully consolidated project application that combines the two individual renewal projects.

If HUD approves and conditionally selects the consolidated project application, HUD will leave the consolidated project at the rank number selected by the CoC and remove the individually ranked projects. Using the example above, if the CoC ranked the consolidated project application with rank #4, HUD will remove the #4 ranked 'Project D' from the Renewal Project Listing and replace the #2 ranked 'Project B' with the consolidated project that was ranked #2. The removal of the #4 ranked project does not affect the total amount of funds requested as the consolidated project application is the sum of 'Project B' and 'Project D'. See an example of this process below that demonstrates how the ranking will occur in the local CoC competition and then how HUD will determine the final ranking if the consolidated application is conditionally selected for award.

In this chart, the CoC ranked project applications on the Renewal Project, including the individual renewal projects that make up the consolidated project:

Project Amount Rank
Project A $100,000 #1
Project B – Individual Renewal $50,000 #2
Project C $125,000 #3
Project D – Individual Renewal $200,000 #4
Project E $25,000 #5
Project F $150,000 #6
Project G $30,000 #7
Project B – Fully Consolidated Project $250,000 #2C
Total Funding Request (includes consolidated project) $ 930,000  
Minus the Consolidated Project ($250,000)  
Total Funding Request $680,000  

If HUD approves the consolidated project application, it will place the amount of the consolidated project in rank position #C2 and will remove the 4th ranked project from funding consideration as shown in the example below; however, this does not affect the Tier 1 or Tier 2 original line, nor does this process change the total funding request.

Project Amount Rank
Project A $100,000 #1
Project B – Consolidated Project $250,000 #C2
Project C $125,000 #3
     
Project E $25,000 #5
Project F $150,000 #6
Project G $30,000 #7
Total Funding Request $680,000  

Based on these two examples, the total funding request for the CoC remains the same, $680,000 which does not affect the amount of funding available within the CoC.
