This section pertains to the region’s application to be submitted to HUD
This Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) establishes the funding criteria for the FY 2017 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. HUD is making available approximately $2 billion in Fiscal Year 2017 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.
The FY 2017 CoC Program Competition opened on July 14, 2017. The region’s application to HUD must be submitted by Thursday, September 28, 2017.
As the collaborative applicant for the Central Florida Continuum of Care (CoC FL-507), the Homeless Services Network of Central Florida is responsible for preparing and submitting the region’s response to the NOFA (application to HUD).
