  • Dedicated HMIS projects, renewal and new, can only be submitted by the CoC’s designated HMIS Lead as identified in the CoC Applicant Profile in e-snaps.

 

Collaborative Applicants

  • The CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing with all project applications accepted and ranked or rejected are separate submissions in e-snaps. Collaborative Applicants must submit both parts of the CoC Consolidated Application by the application submission deadline for HUD to consider the CoC Consolidated Application to be complete.

What’s New for the FY 2019 CoC Program Competition

The list below highlights some important information regarding new concepts CoCs should consider while planning for the FY 2019 CoC Program Competition. This list is not exhaustive and additional details are in the NOFA.

  • Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) Renewals. Many of the YHDP projects awarded in FY 2016 are due for first-time renewal in the FY 2019 CoC Program Competition. See Section II.B.6 of the NOFA for additional details.
     
  • Expansion Projects. The application submission process for renewal projects that want to submit a new expansion project has changed.  See Section III.C.2.j of the NOFA for additional details.
     
  • Domestic Violence (DV) Bonus Projects. There is another up to $50 million available for new DV Bonus projects (Section III.B.2.c of the NOFA) and many of the DV Bonus projects awarded in last year’s FY 2018 CoC Program Competition are eligible for renewal.
     
  • CoC Bonus. The CoC Bonus is calculated differently in FY 2019. As stated in Section III.C.2.c of the NOFA, “…CoC is eligible to apply for up to 5 percent of its Final Pro Rata Need (FPRN), or 25 percent of the CoC's Preliminary Pro Rata Need (PPRN) minus its Annual Renewal Demand (ARD), whichever is greater. To be eligible to receive a bonus project, a CoC must demonstrate that it ranks projects based on how they improve system performance as outlined in Section VII.B.1.a of this NOFA. The available amount per CoC can be found on the CoC Estimated ARD Report on the HUD Exchange.
