On July 14, 2017 the US Department of Housing and Urban Development released the Fiscal Year 2017 CoC Program Notice of Funding Availability Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol.

The Bureau of Homeless and Housing Services functions as the Collaborative Applicant for NH’s BoSCoC. If your agency does not currently receive CoC funding, and you are interested in applying for funding, please contact Betsy O’Connor for NOFA planning meeting dates. Betsy O’Connor can be reached by email or by calling (603) 271-9196.

The BoSCoC has started working on the application for the FY 2017 CoC Program NOFA application. We are in need of project application reviewers. We will have 2 categories that we will need reviewers for: renewal project applications and new project applications. You may NOT be a reviewer if you work for an agency that is submitting an application. If your agency will be submitting a RENEWAL application, you may be a reviewer for the NEW project applications, and vice versa.

Review dates will be scheduled within the next week. Each review session will be scheduled for approximately 2 hours.

If you are willing and able to help us review project applications, please contact Betsy O’Connor by email or by calling (603) 271-9196. Thank you!
