e-snaps : CoC Program Applications and Grants Management System

New

This e-snaps page has been redesigned. It now incorporates the CoC Program Competition resources that were previously located on a separate page. The Programs, Reports, and Prior Funding section has been updated to include links to the Grant Inventory Worksheet reports, an archive of prior funding competitions, and the awards and allocations page. The Ask A Question section clarifies when to select “e-snaps” and “CoC Program.”

The electronic grants management system used by HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) is known as e-snaps.

  • CoC Program Funding Applications and Grant Awards: e-snaps supports the application and grant award process for the HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. The resources available on this page below include general resources, e-snaps navigation guides, and instructions on completing registration (CoCs only) and funding applications (CoCs and project applicants).

    For official HUD releases specific to the current CoC Program Competition cycle, view the FY 2018 Funding Availability page.
     
  • Annual Performance Reports (APR): In April 2017, HUD began requiring CoC homeless assistance grant recipients to submit their APR data through a new online system – the Sage HMIS Reporting Repository. Grantees will no longer submit APRs in e-snaps. This change in systems applies to all CoC homeless assistance grants regardless of when they were initially funded. View APR Guidance.

CoC Program Competition Resources

The CoC Program awards funding annually based on a competitive process. Grant awards are made to recipient organizations that operate housing and services for persons experiencing homelessness and to recipient organizations that represent a CoC and conduct planning or Unified Funding Agency (UFA) activities.
