HUD Awards $315 Million in Grants to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness

On Feb. 2, HUD released a Special Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), which awarded $315 million in grants to Continuums of Care (CoC) to address unsheltered and rural homelessness. The grants will support 46 cities that span across 30 states. Among the total funding, over $54.3 million is allocated to support rural housing with over $260.3 million going to support unsheltered homelessness.

Grantees are encouraged to coordinate their planning efforts collaboratively with partners that may include healthcare providers, PHAs, other HUD-assisted housing providers, and people with lived experience. Additionally, more of these grants are expected to be announced in the coming weeks for other communities.
