FY 2022 CoC Program Registration Forms Available in e-snaps
April 6, 2022 Update: Requesting Additional Time for Registration
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Registration Notice (CPD-22-02) requires that a Collaborative Applicant must include a tribal resolution, from the applicable Indian Tribe authorizing the CoC to include the trust land or reservation in its area of operation, as an attachment to their CoC registration submission in e-snaps.
Indian Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) forming a CoC are not required to obtain a tribal resolution to select their own trust land or reservation or to site a project on their own formula area.
Existing CoCs and neighboring Tribes that are working on partnering have expressed concerns to HUD about meeting the April 7, 2022, submission due date and needing more time for Tribes to complete their tribal resolution process.
CoCs may request up to 30 days of additional time to register by emailing the following information to CoCNOFO@hud.gov:
- Subject: Registration Deadline for Tribal Resolution
- Name of the CoC
- Reason for the request
- Amount of time the CoC will need to submit registration
HUD will respond indicating whether the request for additional time to register is approved.
If a CoC is unable to obtain a tribal resolution in the timeframe allowed, the CoC may submit a letter from an official or principal of the Indian Tribe or TDHE who is authorized to act on behalf of the Indian Tribe or TDHE indicating approval for the CoC to include the Tribal area in its registration.
The Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 CoC Program Registration forms are now available in e-snaps with a submission deadline Thursday, April 7, 2022, at 5:00 PM EDT.
For FY 2022, HUD updated e-snaps to include American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) Tribal area geographic codes and revised the Unified Funding Agency (UFA) application to ensure questions more closely align with Notice CPD-22-02: CoC Program Registration Notice UFA requirements. Therefore, the FY 2022 CoC Program Registration did not open the second Tuesday of January as indicated in Notice CPD 22-02.
In FY 2023 and beyond, unless otherwise notified, the CoC Program Registration process in e-snaps will open the second Tuesday of each January at 1:00 PM EST with a registration deadline of 5:00 PM EST on the first Thursday of March each year.
The CoC Program Registration requirements for the following types of registrations are located on HUD’s website:
- Notice CPD 22-02: CoC Program Registration
- Notice CPD 22-01: UFA
- Notice CPD 22-03: Applying to be a High Performing Community
Registration Forms Criteria
Notice CPD 22-02 provides Collaborative Applicants, including Indian Tribes and TDHEs, with the information necessary to register a CoC in preparation for the annual FY CoC Program Competition and to claim CoC geographic areas, including Tribal lands and Reservations. Collaborative Applicants who meet one or more of the following criteria must access the FY 2022 CoC Program Registration forms in e-snaps.
- Newly formed CoCs must submit the registration by the submission date to have access to the FY 2022 CoC Consolidated Application including the CoC Application, the CoC Priority Listing, and project applications.
- Changes from the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition. CoC designated Collaborative Applicants that have changes from the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition (e.g., change in Collaborative Applicant, CoCs merged, claiming AIAN areas, change in geographic codes) must complete the registration forms to gain access to the FY 2022 CoC Consolidated Application when the CoC Program Competition opens later this year.
- Applying or Re-applying for UFA Designation. UFA designations must be requested annually. All Collaborative Applicants with an existing FY 2021 UFA designation must complete the FY 2022 UFA application and attach the documentation as required in Notice CPD 22-01: Unified Funding Agency. If a Collaborative Applicant with an existing UFA designation does not complete the UFA Application forms with the FY 2022 CoC Program Registration, it will lose its UFA designation for FY 2022.
- Applying for HPC Designation. Any Collaborative Applicant that intends to apply for HPC designation for the CoC must complete all forms and attach documentation as required in Notice CPD 22-03: Applying to be a High Performing Community.
If an existing CoC has no changes from the previous year’s CoC Program Competition and the Collaborative Applicant chooses not to complete the registration forms, HUD will move the previous year’s CoC Program Registration information forward with no changes (see Section I of the Notice CPD-22-02).
The FY 2022 CoC Program Registration Detailed Instructions and Navigational Guide are posted to the CoC Program Competitions page.
Questions about the CoC Program Competition must be submitted to the appropriate HUD.gov email address, as follows:
- CoCNOFO@hud.gov for questions about the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), competition, and applications.
- email@example.com for questions about e-snaps technical issues, including creating an individual user profile, lockouts and password resets, requesting access to a CoC’s or project applicant’s e-snaps account, navigating e-snaps, updating the Applicant Profile, identifying the funding opportunity, creating a project, and accessing the application on the Submissions screen.
Questions about policy and program implementation should continue to be submitted to the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. In Step 2 of the question submission process, select “CoC Program” from the “My question is related to” drop down list. Do not submit competition questions or questions about e-snaps to the CoC Program AAQ help desk or the e-snaps AAQ help desk.
