No. As stated in Section III.C.3.r. of the FY 2018 CoC Program Competition NOFA, transition grants conditionally awarded in the FY 2018 CoC Program Competition have 1 year to fully transition from the original component(s) to the new component during the transition grants normal operating year (e.g., March 1, 2018 through February 28, 2019).

In general, the project's operating start date will be the day after the end of the previous grant term for the expiring component, i.e., the transition grant will have the same operating year as the expiring component project. For transition grants reallocated from more than one project, the operating start date of the transition grant will be the day after the end of the earliest expiring grant term. By the end of the transition grant's FY 2018 operating year, it must be operating under the new component and will be eligible to apply for renewal in the next CoC Program Competition under the component to which it/they transitioned.

Additionally, transition projects that are selected for conditional award cannot use more than 50 percent of the conditional funds towards the old component during the operating year and are expected to fully operate under the new component by the end of the operating year.
