The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), announced on Friday, January 29, 2021 that it will non-competitively renew all CoC renewal grants for a 12-month period all grants expiring during the Calendar year 2021. The link to the CPD notice is provided below for grantees reference. However, it is important to note that the following actions are needed:
Please review the attached spreadsheet to verify that your grant or grants have been listed appropriately, including verifying your grant amounts. If there is a discrepancy between your grant amount and what is listed here, please email RNCoCNevada and send an email with the following information to email@example.com:
- Organization Name
- Project Name
- Grant Number
- Current Grant Amount under the Grant Agreement
It is important to note that HUD has adjusted the renewal amount based on the FY2021 FMR (see page 3 of the notice).
If there are no discrepancies on this sheet, HUD will prepare and send the FY 2020 1-year grant agreement to the authorized contact person for the project via email. You must return the signed agreement within 30 days of receipt. HUD is currently prioritizing the execution of grant agreements for projects and awards expiring within the first quarter of Calendar Year 2021.
Because of the non-competitive award process, the following are unavailable:
- New projects
- Transition grants
- Solo appeals
Grantees are still required to submit Annual Performance Reports.
Posted October 15, 2020
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), as of the date of publication of this notice (October 15, 2020), has not yet made available the FY 2020 CoC Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). To lessen the burden of the application process on existing CoC grantee organizations, the Rural Nevada Continuum of Care has elected to conduct a two-part application process for renewal projects only.
Current CoC grantees wishing to apply for CoC funding for FY 2020 must submit a supplemental application to the CoC Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org) by November 6, 2020. Applications will be reviewed and feedback provided. Mandatory debrief meetings with applicants will be scheduled beginning the week of November 16, 2020.
This process applies to all currently funded CoC grantees. Separate supplemental applications will be published for housing programs, HMIS, and Coordinated Entry grantees.
The following calendar outlines the relevant activities and deadlines for Part One of the process.
Supplemental Applications Published
October 15, 2020
Supplemental Applications Due

Grantee Debrief and Technical Assistance Begins

Submission of Revised Supplemental Application
To Be Determined Based on FY 2020 CoC Program
The application process described in Part One is separate and distinct from that required by HUD, a process which is usually detailed in the CoC Program NOFA.
In a typical year, HUD requires submission of a project-level applications in eSNAPS, a formal Rating and Ranking process, and submission of a collaborative application on behalf of the CoC. Additionally, the NOFA typically specifies the amount of funding available to the CoC, including any bonus funding for new projects.
As noted previously, the FY 2020 CoC Program NOFA has yet to be released. Due to the extraordinary circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, the process may differ from previous years. As such, additional deadlines, supplemental application questions, and processes may be necessary. If or when FY 2020 NOFA is published and these processes clarified, the CoC Coordinator will notify applicants of additional information and/or processes required to apply for funding for the coming fiscal year.
