Overview of Continuum of Care (CoC) Program & Renewal Project Applications
GIW lists HUD Approved budget amounts (prior to any reallocation consideration)
Please see full CoC Interim Regulations at: http://www.hudhre.info/documents/CoCProgramInterimRule_FormattedVersion.pdf
*Note that the BoS CoC is required by CoC regulations to establish a “centralized or coordinated assessment system, and may do so by reallocating all or a portion of one or more of the lowest scoring renewal SSO projects.
Please review HUD’s NOFA for funding criteria (pp. 7-8, 38-39, 44)
Tier 1 (ARD) - projects expected to receive notice of Conditional Funding within 45 days of application deadline (1/18/12).
Funding of Tier 2 (difference between ARD & CoC’s FPRN and any approved amounts for CoC Planning and the PH Bonus) – HUD will announce any Conditional Awards for Tier 2 projects after scoring is complete, depending on availability of funding). A CoC must score high enough to be awarded new projects.
Include, but are not limited to:
Renewal projects considered as having met some threshold requirements through previously approved grant applications unless information to the contrary is received.
YouMUST submit FORMAL documentation with Application Packets (within each of the 7 copies)

100% of applicants MUST submit match/leveraging documentation for review – 150% is the goal
Please remember, grants are disbursed on a reimbursement basis ONLY. Depending on financial history, audit records, and the IRS 990, agencies with only in-kind match, may not be determined as having capacity to administer the program.
