A

Project applicants must complete the first question on Screen 3C Project Expansion Information. For those project applicants that selected “Yes” to the transition grant question on Screen 3A, this screen will not appear. A transition grant cannot also be part of an expansion project. Applicants must respond to the questions as follows:

  1. Will the project use an existing homeless facility or incorporate activities provided by an existing project? Required. Select “No” if this new project application is not one of the two types of expansion projects defined above. Click “Save and Next” to proceed to the next screen. If “Yes” is selected additional questions will appear.
     
  2. Is this new project application requesting a “Project Expansion” of an eligible Continuum of Care (CoC) Program renewal project of the same component type? Required if “Yes” in question 1. Select “No” if requesting to expand a non-CoC Program funded project and answer the remaining questions on Screen 3C. If “Yes,” enter the renewal PIN number (first 6 characters of the grant number, e.g., AL0101) and the renewal Project Name of project that will be expanded through this new project application. Answer the remaining questions on Screen 3C.


    For either CoC Program expansion of a renewal or expansion of non-CoC Program funded projects, select and add the applicable expansion activities from the eligible project type activities listed below. Note: “Coordinated Entry” is available as a selection in e-snaps but is only eligible for new Supportive Services Only for Coordinated Entry (SSO-CE) expansion requests.

    • Increase the number of homeless persons served
    • Providing additional supportive services to homeless persons
    • Bringing existing facilities up to state/local government health and safety standards
