HUD Continuum of Care Application

FY 2023 Notice of Funding Opportunity

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released the FY 2023 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition and Noncompetitive Award of Youth Homeless Demonstration Program Renewal and Replacement Grants 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, Indian Tribes or tribally designated housing entities, 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. The goal of the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program is to support the development and implementation of a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness and sharing that experience with and mobilizing communities around the country toward the same end. The population to be served by the demonstration program is youth experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth.

CoCs are 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 Administrator Gillian Gunawan ( if you have a new, eligible program that you would like to discuss for this year’s CoC application.

Renewal project application guidance is posted below; new project application guidance forthcoming.
