FY18 CoC NOFA is out

HUD has released the FY18 NOFA. The CoC expects to release a Request for Proposals for renewal and new projects on July 6, 2018, with responses due August 17.

This year’s competition includes a new DV Bonus as well as a regular Bonus, so start thinking about new projects. Here are details:

DV Bonus

HUD has made $5 million available for new projects which will provide housing and services to survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Although firm numbers are not yet out, the CoC expects that it will be able to apply for approximately $360,000 in this category, which will be for a one-year grant. These projects may be operated by a DV provider or a non-DV provider expanding services to serve this population. The project can be an expansion of an existing project. The CoC can submit one application for each of the three components:

  • Rapid Rehousing
  • Joint Transitional Housing-Rapid Rehousing
  • Coordinated Entry for DV survivors

Bonus

Again, grant amounts are not finalized, but the CoC expects to be able to apply for $217,000  for a new bonus project. This amount could be increased if the CoC reallocates from any existing projects. Different from past years, the Bonus project may be any of the following components:

  • Permanent Supportive Housing
  • Rapid Rehousing
  • Joint Transitional Housing-Rapid Rehousing
  • Coordinated Entry
  • HMIS (can only be applied for by the HMIS lead)

Stay tuned to this space…when the RFP is released it will be posted here.
