In the new project application, Screen 3A Project Detail, question 6 asks if the project is applying as a transition project. A “Yes” response will open additional questions specific to a transition project. Transition projects must list the expiring grant number(s) involved in the transition and must attach a copy of the most recently approved project application(s) on Screen 7A. (e.g., if the expiring project was last funded in the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition, attach a copy of the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition project application).

In question 6c. of this screen, the project applicant must provide a description that addresses the scope of the proposed transition from the expiring component to the new component during the first year of operation. Provide a detailed description of how the project will be transitioned from the renewal project to the new project. The description must include:

  1. how the project will strategically wind down the eliminated project;
  2. how the project will ensure existing program participants in the eliminated project do not become homeless and will be assisted in obtaining permanent housing, while the project increases activities in the new component;
  3. the amount of funds that will be used to wind down the eliminated project(s). Remember, if the project is selected for conditional award as a transition grant the recipient is limited to no more than 50 percent of each transition grant for costs of eligible activities of the eliminated project(s); and
  4. the estimated timeline, within the 1-year grant period, that the project will be fully operating as the newly awarded component.
