This URL will lead to the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) which establishes the funding criteria for the FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. HUD is making available approximately $2.1 billion in Fiscal Year 2018 for the CoC Program. The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness. Please watch for email announcing meetings and the application process or keep checking the GLHRN website: http://glhrn.org/
Please note: if you are considering a Consolidation, please notify HRCS in writing – (Matt.Stevenson@lansingmi.gov) – by Monday, August 13, Noon, as the local HUD Field office must approve these proposals.
