CoC Program Interim Rule - Public Comment Period Extended to November 16, 2012
The Continuum of Care Program interim rule was published in the Federal Register on July 31, 2012 and went into effect on August 30, 2012. The public comment period was originally set to close on October 1, 2012; however, HUD is extending the deadline for submitting comments to Friday, November 16, 2012. The notice announcing the extension will be published in the Federal Register on Friday, September 28, 2012 and is now available on the Homelessness Resource Exchange (HRE). Interested parties can submit comments to www.regulations.gov. Please follow the instructions on page 2 of the interim rule for comment submission.
HUD will review all comments submitted and use the comments to consider changes for the Final Rule. When submitting comments, HUD strongly encourages communities to read the regulation carefully, consider any challenges or barriers that might arise when implementing this program at the local level, and include specific recommendations that will help ease the implementation burden in their comments.
