Solo applicants must submit their solo project application in e-snaps to HUD by 8:00 PM EDT, on October 20, 2022. See Section X.C of this NOFO for additional information regarding the Solo Applicant appeal process.

Additionally, the solo applicant, Collaborative Applicant, and HUD must take the following steps (See 24 CFR 578.35 for more information): 

  1. Written Notice of Intent to Appeal. The solo applicant must submit a written notice of intent to appeal, with a copy to the CoC, with their funding application. 
  2. No later than 30 days after the date that HUD announces the awards, the solo applicant shall submit in writing, with a copy to the Collaborative Applicant, all relevant evidence supporting its claim. The submission shall be emailed to snapsappeals@hud.gov. 
  3. The CoC shall have 30 days from the date of its receipt of the solo applicant's evidence to respond to HUD in writing, with a copy to the solo applicant. The submission shall be emailed to snapsappeals@hud.gov. 
  4. HUD will notify the solo applicant and the CoC of its decision within 60 days of receipt of the CoC’s response. 
  5. If HUD finds that the solo applicant was not permitted to participate in the Continuum of Care planning process in a reasonable manner, then HUD may award a grant to the solo applicant when funds next become available and may direct the Continuum of Care to take remedial steps to ensure reasonable participation in the future. HUD may also reduce the award to the Continuum's applicant(s).
