HUD released the FY17 CoC NOFA on July 14. The NOFA makes available $3,619,553 in funding for permanent supportive housing, rapid rehousing, and a new category Transitional Housing-Rapid Rehousing, which allows a single provider to have a program that combines these two housing types in order to allow very short-term transitional housing placements followed by provision of rental assistance. The NOFA also makes available renewal funding for HMIS and Coordinated Entry.
Of this year’s grant, $339,807 are bonus funds for one or more new projects. In addition to these funds, there is the possibility that additional funds will be freed up from existing grants for new projects.
