Overview of Continuum of Care (CoC) Program & Project Applications
Permanent Supportive Housing (permanent housing for people that are chronically homeless and have a disability)
CoCs may submit project applications for Permanent Supportive Housing projects, which are new permanent supportive housing projects that serve chronically homeless individuals, with priority on serving those with the longest histories of homelessness, to the extent that funds are available through reallocation or grant reduction. (amount currently unknown)
For new projects, that make it to the CoC priority ranking list, to be awarded: 1) CoC must score high enough AND 2) funding must be available.
For New projects, youMUST submit FORMAL documentation with Application Packets (within each of the 7 copies)
Non-cash can include:
CoCs that have 100 percent participation in leveraging from all project applications (including only those communities that have commitment letter(s) on file that are dated within 60 days of the CoC application deadline) and that have at a minimum 150 percent leveraging will receive the maximum points.
New 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.
An “individual” that :
Persons who were chronically homeless at entry remain chronically homeless at exit, if an institutional stay is less than 90 days.
Can be diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions: substance use disorder, serious mental illness, developmental disability (as defined in section 102 of the Developmental Disabilities Assistance Bill of Rights Act of 2000 (42 U.S.C. 15002)), post-traumatic stress disorder, cognitive impairments resulting from brain injury, or chronic physical illness or disability (page 53, CoC Interim Rule).
In general, the disability is expected to be of long-continued and indefinite duration; substantially impedes his or her ability to live independently; and is of such a nature that ability to live independently could be improved by more suitable housing conditions.
A person is chronically homeless IF:
you can prove with adequate documentation.
All projects MUST meet HUD definition of chronically homelessness and MUST complete/provide homeless verification on ALL persons served.
