The CoC will notify applicants of acceptance, rejection, or modification of their projects no later than August 6, 2018

Please understand that HUD has specific requirements for applicants, including:
- The Continuum of Care will carefully review the qualifications of the applicant and the proposed project to assure that they meet HUD’s threshold requirements.
- Projects that (1) are eligible; and (2) that meet HUD’s threshold requirements; and (3) that demonstrate need; and (4) that demonstrate organizational capacity, will be accepted and ranked in priority order using an objective process. The ranking process will be posted on this website.
- Individuals, for-profit organizations, and unincorporated entities are not eligible to apply.
- Under the Domestic Violence Bonus, organizations may apply for targeted projects serving victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and/or trafficking. These projects may be: Rapid Rehousing; Joint Transitional Housing and Permanent Housing/Rapid Rehousing; and specialized Coordinated Entry.
- Only three types of projects are eligible: Rapid Rehousing; Permanent Supportive Housing for persons with disabilities who experience long-term or repeated homelessness; and Joint Transitional Housing and Permanent Housing/Rapid Rehousing. The NOFA provides details on each of these.
- Applicant organizations must use the e-snaps system to submit their proposals. If interested, you are strongly urged to create an “Applicant Profile” in e-snaps immediately. Select this link to access the log-in page for e-snaps. If you do not have an e-snaps user account, select "Create a Profile" from the e-snaps log-in page.
