e-snaps : CoC Program Applications and Grants Management System

New

This e-snaps page has been redesigned as follows:

  • Incorporates the CoC Program Competition resources previously located on a separate page.
  • Updates the Programs, Reports, and Prior Funding section to include links to the GIW reports, a list of funding competitions, and the awards and allocations page.
  • Clarifies when to select “e-snaps” and “CoC Program" when submitting a question to Ask A Question.

 

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 below include e-snaps navigation guides and instructions on completing registration (CoCs only) and funding applications (CoCs and project applicants).

    View the FY 2018 Funding Availability page for official HUD releases specific to the current CoC Program Competition cycle.
     
  • 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.
