Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released the FY2013 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for Continuum of Care (CoC) Programs. Per HUD's regulations the CoC is required to post the Consolidated Application. Funding this year is only available for CoC renewal projects or conversion of current CoC projects to Permanent Supportive Housing serving chronically homeless or Rapid Rehousing serving families.
The Bureau of Homeless and Housing Services (BHHS) applied for a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) which 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 Bureau applied for $2,890,477 in renewal funding for Homeless Outreach, Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), Transitional Housing Programs, Permanent Supportive Housing programs, and $409,281 in new funding for a Permanent Supportive Housing Program, two Rapid ReHousing Programs, and a Planning Grant to improve CoC functions and to develop a statewide coordinated intake system. 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.
