2018 HUD CoC NOFA Materials

8/13/18 – Given the Strategic Direction provided by the HUD CoC Committee to encourage applications for the 2018 NOFA DV Bonus projects and the unanticipated challenges and complexity in applying for these new projects, the NOFA Committee has determined to extend the deadline for all new DV Bonus project applications through August 21st at noon. The August 17th deadline for renewal and all other new projects (not DV Bonus) has not changed. 

EveryOne Home held the 2018 HUD CoC NOFA Bidders’ Conference for the Local Competition on Friday, July 20th. In addition to releasing NOFA timelines and Local Competition’s instructions for renewal and new projects, EOH staff will provide further debriefing from the 2017 scores, a brief analysis on the CoC’s strengths and challenges, and this year’s NOFA highlights and opportunities to apply for new projects.
