The Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), submission due September 18, establishes the funding criteria for the FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. HUD is making available approximately $2.1 billion in Fiscal Year 2018 for the CoC Program. The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

Most communities lack the resources needed to meet all of the needs of people experiencing homelessness. HUD’s primary goals for coordinated entry systems are that assistance be allocated as effectively as possible and that it be easily accessible no matter where or how people present. Check your Linda Bookwalter and your Dorian Heimbach emails for details and email Linda Bookwalter on who will attend; firstname.lastname@example.org.
