2014 CoCIntroduction

Proposals only for new permanent housing projects serving families who are homeless are requested, as follows:

  • Rapid rehousing (RRH) for homeless families with children, and for youth-headed families

2014 CoCIntroduction

The CoC will reallocate up to 10% of 2014 renewal funding to encourage:

  • New high-performing and innovative programs

  • New non-capital projects not currently receiving these funds

  • New projects proposed by current grantees with lower priority programs, who propose different programs that better align with the CoC’s critical priorities (RRH & PSH for families)

2014 coc funding

US Dept of HUD’s 2014 McKinney-Vento CoC Program funding (2013-14 CoC NOFA)
