The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released its annual Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition.
The Human Services Coalition acts as the lead agency for the Ithaca/Tompkins County CoC, and is the agency responsible for submitting the grant application, as well as monitoring CoC-funded supportive housing programs and determining eligibility for new supportive housing programs applying for funding through the competition.
The CoC is currently seeking proposals for supportive housing programs for families, individuals, and unaccompanied youth experiencing homelessness.
1. Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) where beds are Dedicated (for chronically homeless) or DedicatedPlus (for participants with extended homeless history, but are not chronically homeless)
2. Rapid Rehousing (RRH) projects that assists individuals and families in quickly exiting homelessness and return to permanent housing by providing housing search, ongoing case management, and short term to medium term rental assistance.
3. Joint Transitional/ PH-RRH projects that combine all three elements into a single project serving individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
4. PH or RRH or Joint TH/PH/RRH projects that will be dedicated to serving survivors of domestic violence.
Visit the COC webpage for access to the full RFP, ranking tools, the CoC Program NOFA, and for any updates regarding the competition.
