HUD’s Continuum of Care (CoC) Program (24 CFR part 578) is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, Indian Tribes or tribally designated housing entities (as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103) (TDHEs), and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

The CoC Program NOFO sets up the procedure by which a local CoC, through its designee, submits a single collaborative application to fund eligible projects that advance the local CoC’s goals.  The consolidated application that will be submitted by CCCD for the FY2021 CoC Program Grant Competition will include eligible new projects and renewal projects. FCCCoC is seeking proposals from local providers to develop projects that would provide housing and services for the persons experiencing homelessness.

Project applications must be submitted in HUD’s electronic grant application system e-snaps no later than October 15, 2021, 11:59:59 p.m., eastern time.  CCCD will provide applicants access to e-snaps and technical assistance regarding use of the system. An explanation of the process can be found on FCCCoC’s website.

FCCCoC expects renewal and new projects to be awarded a  combined total of $718,683 in this funding round and may receive up to a combined total of $870,818.  Annual grant amounts for existing CoC-funded programs in the community range from approximately $55,468 to $230,153.  The following are estimated amounts available:

Preliminary Pro Rata Need$760,676
Total Annual Renewal Demand (ARD)$718,683
