The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness this past August. This competitive funding opportunity would make up to $322 million available to address unsheltered and rural homelessness. Applications must be submitted in e-snaps no later than October 20, 2022, at 8:00 PM EDT.
CoC’s interested in applying must demonstrate a community-wide approach in reducing homelessness. Funding is available for four different categories which include:
- The Unsheltered Homelessness Set Aside
- The Rural Set Aside
- CoC Planning Unsheltered Homelessness Set Aside
- Unified Funding Agency (UFA) Costs Unsheltered Homelessness Set Aside
Applicants must already be an existing CoC and can apply to either funding opportunity or both depending on their needs and eligibility. The NOFO can be found here.
For more information about this NOFO please see our next edition of The Monitor on September 15.
