HUD Issues New Guidance on Whether PHAs are Eligible to Apply for Funds Under the CoC Program
HUD rescinds the FAQ response on the Homelessness Resource Exchange (FAQ 1984) to the question about eligibility of PHAs to apply for funds under the Continuum of Care (CoC) program posted on October 3, 2012, except for the statement that all PHAs that are current grantees may apply for renewal funding under the CoC Program.
HUD has revised the answer to the question as follows:
All PHAs that meet the definition of “public housing agency” in 24 CFR 5.100 are eligible to apply for CoC funding (including as Collaborative Applicants) without limitation or exclusion. The CoC final rule and the CoC Fiscal Year 2012 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) will make explicit the eligibility of all PHAs to apply for CoC funding. Additionally, all PHAs that are current grantees may apply for renewal funding under the CoC Program.
