This Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) establishes the funding criteria for the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. HUD is making available approximately $1.61 billion in Fiscal Year 2012 for the CoC Program. The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
The FY2012 CoC Program Competition is the first funding competition to be administered under the CoC Program interim rule. While the process is similar to past Homeless Assistance Grants competitions, the content and steps differ in key ways. Applicants should review and follow the steps as outlined in the NOFA to ensure that applications are complete and submitted timely.
Please also refer to the FY2012 CoC Program NOFA Technical Correction Notice, released on December 12, 2012, for corrections to this NOFA, including a corrected Appendix A.
The application deadline for submitting applications to HUD is 7:59:59 p.m. Eastern Time, January 18, 2013. Applicants will be required to complete and submit their applications in e-snaps at www.hud.gov/esnaps.
