HUD Continuum of Care Application

FY 2018 Notice of Funding Availability

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released the FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition Notice of Funding Availability. 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 rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, 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. CoCs were required to designate a Collaborative Applicant to submit a consolidated CoC application for funding for the community as a whole, and the Community Shelter Board (CSB) is Columbus and Franklin County’s collaborative applicant. Please contact CSB Grants and Compliance Director Heather Notter if you have a new, eligible program that you would like to discuss for this year’s CoC application (hnotter@csb.org).

Funding Opportunity for Programs Serving Survivors of Domestic Violence

In this year’s CoC competition, HUD has set aside $50 million for rapid re-housing projects and supportive service projects providing coordinated entry to assist survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The Columbus and Franklin County CoC is accepting proposals for these funds, to be included in our community’s annual CoC application.
