HUD Awards Nearly $2.2 Billion to Local Homeless Programs
On January 14, 2020, HUD announced $2.16 billion in grants to provide funding to 6,595 local homeless housing and service programs across the U.S. and its territories. These Continuum of Care (CoC) grants provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, and local governments to quickly rehouse individuals and families experiencing homelessness and provide support while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness.
The Tier 1 funding announcement includes Renewal, New, Domestic Violence (DV) Bonus, CoC Planning, and Unified Funding Agency (UFA) projects. HUD will award approximately $122 million in Tier 2 funding to support hundreds of local projects in the near future. Tier 2 grants will include Renewal, New, and DV Bonus projects and projects straddling Tier 1 and Tier 2 will be announced along with other Tier 2 projects.
Applicants must submit appeals of funding determinations within 45 days of HUD making the final award announcement. HUD will issue a listserv announcement indicating that it has published the final award announcement which will also indicate the deadline for submitting appeals. See Section X of the FY 2019 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for more details.
