CoC PPRN Alternate Formula Testing Tool

Date Published: July 2016

Print ShareThis


This tool is designed for the public to test the impact of potential factors for an alternate Continuum of Care (CoC) formula. HUD’s goal is to create an alternate CoC Preliminary Pro Rata Need (PPRN) formula that approximates the actual homeless need in communities, so a comparison to the most recent available Point-In-Time (PIT) Count serves as a useful comparison point.

For more information about the re-opening of the CoC program interim rule for additional public comment on the PPRN formula, view the CoC Program Notice for Further Comment on the PPRN Formula.
