FY2014 Continuum of Care Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA)
HUD has released the FY2014 Continuum of Care Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA). As you will recall during last year’s NOFA the overall CoC Application was for a two year period. This year we still need to complete renewal applications and a project priority listing. In order for our renewal applications to be reviewed by the Roundtable they must be submitted via ESnaps by Thursday, October 16, 2014. Final project applications must be submitted in ESnaps by Thursday, October 30, 2014 by 7:59 pm.
Offered this year is a bonus projects only for chronically homeless permanent housing projects and can be 15% of the FPRN. Our chance of being awarded a project is very slim as HUD has already determined CoC needs scores. The Roundtable only scored a 15 out of 60. More information is included in the NOFA. There is the possibility of creating a new projects by reallocating an existing project. Please see below:
CoC's may reallocate funds from existing projects to create new PSH projects that create new rapid re-housing projects for homeless households with children who enter directly from the streets or emergency shelters. There is also a bonus project available to provide permanent supportive housing dedicated to the chronically homeless. Please refer to the NOFA links above for further details.
The Roundtable on Homelessness requests that if anyone is interested in proposing a reallocation of money for a new project or submitting a bonus project to please submit a letter of interest to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 3:00 pm on Monday, October 6, 2014. You are encouraged to read the entire NOFA if you are submitting a letter of interest. If there are any questions concerning the NOFA, please address them to Jeanine Beasley at email@example.com.
To request a new project through reallocation, your letter must include: (1) a description of the proposed new project, (2) cost of the proposed new project, and (3) how CoC funds would be reallocated to fund the new project. For the bonus project, please provide 1 and 2 above. Assistance and guidance will be provided by the CoC Collaborative Agent – Mid-Shore Mental Health Systems - to organizations who submit projects.
