Eastern CoC: Important Information and Timelines Related to HUD CoC NOFOs

Attention CoC Partners:

Important information and timelines related to HUD CoC NOFOs – Annual CoC Competition and Special NOFO to address unsheltered and rural homelessness

HUD has recently released two funding opportunities for CoCs: 1) Annual CoC Competition NOFO (Consolidated CoC application due 9/30/22); 2) Special NOFO to address unsheltered and rural homelessness (Consolidated CoC application due 10/20/22). The Eastern PA CoC will be applying for both of these opportunities. Under the Special NOFO, the CoC will be applying for the Rural Set Aside.

Based on the deadlines above, CoCs are required to set local timelines for soliciting and selecting new projects, and for obtaining necessary information from CoC projects eligible for renewal. Timelines will be tight for the CoC to complete HUD’s requirements for both opportunities. As such, the CoC is releasing a proposed timeline for both competitions so that CoC partners are aware of upcoming important dates:

Annual CoC Competition – New Projects (including Domestic Violence Bonus)

  • Funding Committee Meeting to finalize new project RFP week of 8/8
  • CoC release new project RFP on 8/12
  • RFP responses (preliminary applications) due by 8/30
  • New projects selected by the CoC notified by 9/9
  • New projects selected must submit esnaps draft application by 9/15
  • New projects selected will receive feedback from DMA (CoC consultant) on esnaps draft application, and must submit final esnaps application in esnaps by 9/23

 
Annual CoC Competition – Renewal Projects

  • The CoC is currently waiting for HUD to open esnaps application for CoC renewal projects. Once this happens, DMA will send out instructions to renewal grantees and timelines. Grantees will likely have a 2-week turnaround to submit PDF of completed renewal project application exported from esnaps to DMA for review.
  • DMA will review esnaps applications and provide feedback.
  • Final esnaps applications will be due within 5 days of receiving DMA feedback.

Please be on the lookout for additional information from the CoC for the opportunities above. New Project RFPs will be released via the CoC mailing list. Renewal project instructions will be sent directly to CoC grantees from the CoC email address.
