Date Published: August 2018

The Project Rating and Ranking Tool is an optional tool that can be used by CoCs to evaluate projects and set ranking priorities within the CoC. The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is an essential resource in helping HUD meet the national goals of preventing and ending homelessness in the United States. CoCs should use objective, performance based scoring criteria and selection priorities that are approved by the CoC to determine the extent to which each project addresses HUD’s policy priorities. CoCs should reallocate funds to new projects whenever reallocation would improve outcomes and reduce homelessness, and consider how much each project spends to serve and house an individual or family as compared to other projects serving similar populations.

Version 3.2 contains fixes for programming errors that prevented rating factors for being shown or being shown correctly, clarifications to instructions and minor functionality improvements. Programming corrections were made to the display of scoring for additional New Project rating factors which had been hidden because of a programming omission, and to the display of rating criteria based on Project Type selected or when switching between project types. The instructions in the About the Tool tab have been clarified for migrating data from previous versions of the Tool to the current version and for manually entering data in the List of Projects to be Reviewed tab. Programming has been updated so that performance data entered into the Renew + Exp Rating Tool tab is now saved so it can be retrieved later. A list of changes from version 3.0 to version 3.2 has been added to the About the Tool tab. CoCs can migrate data from version 3.0 to version 3.2 using the same migration instructions as moving data from version 2.3 to version 3.0.

Updated Project Ranking Videos will be available soon.
