CoC Funding Competition

About the Competition

HUD’s Continuum of Care (CoC) homeless assistance program serves as a source of funding for homeless services in Erie, Niagara, Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming County. The lead agency coordinating these services (CoC Lead) is the Homeless Alliance of Western New York (HAWNY).  HUD awards homeless assistance grants through an annual application process known as the CoC Program Funding Competition. The competition is a two-step process made up of local and national funding application. First, homeless service providers submit a local application in response to the Request For Proposal (RFP) released by the HAWNY, the CoC lead. Projects that make the selection list through the Rank and Review Process will advance to the federal application process. Second, projects selected submit a national application through E-snaps in response to HUD’s Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). HAWNY prepares the Collaborative Application for the CoC NOFO and provides technical assistance to projects applying for CoC funding, however, applicants are responsible for the preparation of both the local application and, if selected, the HUD electronic submission through e-snaps.

Projects that are eligible for the CoC funding are Joint Transitional Housing and Rapid Rehousing(TH-RRH), Rapid Re-Housing (RRH), Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), Supportive Service Only Coordinated Entry Project (SSO-CE), Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), and CoC Planning. Renewal projects and new projects are reviewed separately based on the criteria and principles detailed in the CoC Funding Guide. The Local Request for Proposal, which details the funding opportunities and application process, will be published on HAWNY’s website.
