FY 2022 Notice of Funding Opportunity

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released the FY 2022 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 (ggunawan@csb.org) if you have a new, eligible program that you would like to discuss for this year’s CoC application.

2022 Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity to address Unsheltered Homelessness

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued a CoC Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to address Unsheltered Homelessness. This is a unique opportunity to apply for NEW funding to address unsheltered homelessness. 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.

Community Shelter Board (CSB) is seeking proposals in response to the Continuum of Care Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity to Address Unsheltered Homelessness, (Continuum of Care Supplemental to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness (hud.gov)). Applications are due to CSB by 5 pm on August 19, 2022.

Applicants can apply to provide:

- Permanent Housing   

     - Rapid Rehousing

     - Permanent Supportive Housing (costs for acquisition, new construction or rehab are not allowable)

- Joint Transitional Housing and PH-Rapid Rehousing

- Supportive services only (includes projects providing services to unsheltered)

     - Street Outreach

     - Coordinated Entry

- HMIS

- CoC Planning (limited at 3% of the application)

- CoC UFA (limited at 3% of the application)

The CoC Scoring and Ranking document and the CoC Plan for Serving Individuals and Families Experiencing Homelessness with Severe Service Needs (referenced in the applications) will be issued at a later date but prior to the proposals due date.

CSB is seeking proposals that will demonstrate the ability to create a sustainable program that will achieve all expected outcomes. Review the expected outcomes by project type: Program_Performance_Standards_FY23

Applicants should have experience with providing some or all of the services described in the NOFO. Applicants are expected to implement programs that comply with CSB Partner Agency Standards and the Homeless Crisis Response System Policies and Procedures

The application is competitive and only the top ranked CoCs will be awarded funding. The application process closely mirrors the annual Continuum of Care Application process. We are expecting to have two concurrent Continuum of Care Applications this year – the regular renewal application expected to be due in September and the new opportunity to address unsheltered homelessness due October 20.

Maximum award for Columbus and Franklin County: $9,123,297 (over 3 years)
