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.

Part One

Current CoC grantees wishing to apply for CoC funding for FY 2020 must submit a supplemental application to the CoC Coordinator (rncocnevada@gmail.com) 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.

Part Two

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.
