Explore e-snaps 101 and 201 Toolkits
The FY 2021 CoC Program competition is underway. Organizations are in varying stages of accessing e-snaps and working on applications. The HUD Exchange e-snaps resources page has two Toolkits that assist Collaborative Applicants and project applicants in mastering e-snaps.
e-snaps 101 Toolkit
Explore the resources available in the e-snaps 101 Toolkit. The following may be particularly helpful:
- Use this checklist to get started in e-snaps.
- Create an individual user profile.
- If you already have access to your organization’s e-snaps account, give access to your coworkers.
- Request access to your organization’s account if the only person with access is no longer available.
- Understand the difference between a Collaborative Applicant and a Project Applicant.
- Keep this Glossary handy in case you aren’t sure what the e-snaps jargon means. “Register” and “Project” don’t necessarily mean what you think they do.
e-snaps 201 Toolkit
Explore the resources available in the e-snaps 201 Toolkit. The following may be particularly helpful:
- Review this 10-minute video that takes you through four simple steps to access your application,
or review this Accessing the CoC Program Project Application in e-snaps resource with screenshots.
- Update the Applicant Profile. If you’ve heard the term “edit-mode,” this resource explains what that is. It applies both to the CoC Collaborative Applicant Profile and the Project Applicant Profile.
SNAPS Mailing List Subscription
SNAPS is now using two different listservs to communicate competition and program updates:
