Scoring of renewal projects was completed in September 2013
Scoring tool was developed by a community workgroup with HUD TA, disseminated for public comments, and approved by the CoC Steering Committee
All projects approved by the CoC must be ranked as Tier 1 or Tier 2
Indicate to HUD which projects are prioritized for funding in the event that the national total annual renewal demand exceeds the $1.7 billion available through this NOFA
Funding will only be available for projects ranked in Tier 1
CoCs that receive a higher score have a better chance of being awarded projects ranked in Tier 2, depending on the availability of carryover or recaptured funds
All projects will be included on the CoC’s Priority Listings in e-snaps
HUD will select all projects in Tier 1 before selecting any projects in Tier 2 until no additional funds are available.
This means that lower ranked projects may be selected for funding above higher ranked projects.
HUD intends to announce conditional funding for Tier 1 renewal projects within 45 days of the application deadline of the CoC Program Competition.
HUD will announce any additional Conditional Awards (new projects and Tier 2 renewals) after scoring is complete, depending on availability of funding.
Applicants who submit prior to 5:00:00 pm (CST) on December 20, 2013 will be eligible for entry into a drawing for a free lunch for all applicants who work for the project at a time and date to be determined by the CFTH and winning project staff.
