This message only applies to Continuums of Care (CoCs) and their Collaborative Applicants who submitted an FY 2017 CoC Program Registration to HUD by May 1, 2017. This is phase 2 of the process in which CoCs will review HUD’s determination.
HUD has completed review of each CoC’s registration for the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition in e-snaps and returned the registration process back to CoCs for review and acceptance – or dispute – of HUD’s review. Collaborative applications must access e-snaps at www.hud.gov/esnaps to review HUD’s determination and either agree and submit or disagree at which point the registration will be returned to HUD for one final review and then returned to the Collaborative Applicant for approval. If, for any reason, the Collaborative Applicant disagrees with HUD’s determination in the second review, you must contact your local HUD field office for discussion as soon as possible, prior to submitting.
All Collaborative Applicants should review and approve or disagree with:
- Collaborative Applicant designation – “CA” for Collaborative Applicant or “UFA” for Unified Funding Agency.
- CoC claimed geography to ensure that all of the geographic codes located within the CoC’s geographic area have been claimed and if any changes were made by HUD after consultation with the CoC’s Collaborative Applicant, that the changes were accurate.
If the Collaborative Applicant disputes any part of the CoC Review, HUD will review one last time and consider the Collaborative Applicant’s proposed changes. HUD will notify the Collaborative Applicant via e-mail that a final determination has been made. The Collaborative Applicant will then go back into e-snaps to access the CoC Review step and select “Submit.” All disputes must be resolved and approved by Friday, June 2, 2017 by 3:00 PM your local time. A Collaborative Applicant only has one opportunity to dispute HUD’s determination; if the Collaborative Applicant disagrees with HUD’s determination the second time they will receive a final rejection notice and will not have access to the FY 2017 CoC Consolidated Application.
- Collaborative Applicants that fail to submit the FY 2017 CoC Program Registration on behalf of the CoC by June 2, 2017 by 3:00 PM local time will not have access to the FY 2017 CoC Program Consolidated Application and will not be able to apply for FY 2017 CoC Program funds.
- Phase 2 has up to two required steps once HUD notifies Collaborative Applicants that this phase is available via listserv message:
- Step 1 – Collaborative Applicants return to e-snaps to review HUD's determination of geographic codes and, if the Collaborative Applicant requested UFA designation, HUD's determination.
- Step 2 – Collaborative Applicant agrees or disagrees with HUD’s determination:
- If agrees, submits approval in e-snaps at which point the FY 2017 CoC Program Registration is complete and the Collaborative Applicant will have access to the FY 2017 CoC Consolidated Application when the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition opens; or
- If disagrees, submits disapproval at which point HUD will review one final time.
- Step 3 – only for Collaborative Applicants that disapproved HUD's decision in Step 2:
- HUD will review and issue the final determination at which point the Collaborative Applicant must agree and submit approval in e-snaps, which will provide access to the FY 2017 CoC Consolidated Application when the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition opens.
- If the Collaborative Applicant disagrees in this step, the e-snaps system will generate a rejection letter and the Collaborative Applicant will not have access to the FY 2017 CoC Consolidated Application.
