Yes. Changes to the FY 2019 Continuum of Care (CoC) Application include:

  1. HUD removed several questions and divided other questions requiring multiple narrative responses for clarity.
  2. Unless otherwise noted in the question, the dates referred to as Fiscal Year (FY) are for the Federal Fiscal Year (October 1, 2018 to September 30, 2019).
  3. The Ter 1 and Tier 2 calculations have changed in that Tier 1 is equal to 100 percent of the combined Annual Renewal Amount (ARA) for all projects eligible for renewal for the first time plus 94 percent of the combined ARA for all other projects eligible for renewal. Tier 2 is the difference between Tier 1 and the CoC’s ARA plus any amount available for CoC Bonus projects (not including DV Bonus) and before adjustments are made due to changes to Fair Market Rent (FMR).
  4. CoC Bonus Projects. CoCs may apply for up to 5 percent of their Final Pro Rata Need (FPRN), or 25 percent of the CoC’s PPRN minus its Annual Renewal Demand (ARD), whichever is greater provided they have demonstrated the ability to reallocate lower performing projects to create new higher projects as outlined in Section II.B.1 of the FY 2019 CoC Program Competition NOFA.
  5. Domestic Violence (DV) Bonus Projects. HUD added questions to address DV Bonus Projects. CoCs may apply for one SSO-CE project and unlimited RRH projects and Joint TH/RRH project within the CoC funding limit.
  6. Racial Disparities. HUD changed questions about CoCs assessing their systems for racial disparity.
