CoC Funding Competition

HAWNY, as the CoC Lead Agency, coordinates the process that selects the local projects that will be moved forward to the federal HUD CoC Program Competition. Usually, it is a two-step process. First, a local application has to be submitted in response to the Request For Proposal (RFP) released by HAWNY. Projects will be reviewed and ranked by an independent Project Selection Committee. Projects that make the selection list will advance to the federal application process, once HUD releases its Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA).
