Notice of Funding Opportunity: Continuum of Care


The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development released the 2021 Continuum of Care Notice of Funding Opportunity on Aug. 19. This competition is now open. 

If agencies do not already have a CoC-funded program, and are considering applying for CoC funds this year, please contact Raina Smith-Roller (, with your name, agency and email address so she can be sure you have the appropriate information in a timely manner.

The deadline for project application submission to our CoC Steering Committee (completed in ESNAPS) is Tuesday, Oct.12. All applications, new or renewal (including bonus projects), that would like to be considered in this year’s CoC application must submit their project application(s) through ESNAPS and complete a project score card by Tuesday, Oct. 12.

All agencies planning to or considering applying are encouraged to read the NOFA in full. Among other things, here are some of the possibilities available this year:

  1. Expand an existing program by adding beds, services, etc. to an existing project
  2. Consolidate two projects with the same project type during the application process
  3. Apply for a “Transitions grant” to help agencies move toward a different program type (i.e. Transitional housing to Rapid Rehousing) slowly over the course of a year
  4. Apply for a new, reallocated project
  5. Apply for a new bonus project
  6. Apply for a renewal project
