NOTE: This message does not apply to project applicants submitting project applications.
All CoCs intending to participate in the FY2012 Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Program Competition must go back into e-snaps
to submit their final CoC review of HUD’s determination of the registration into e-snaps
by Monday, October 15, 2012 by 5:00 pm Eastern Time.
HUD will have all of the CoC Registration reviews completed by COB Friday, October 12th
. If you do not see your CoC Review folder yet in e-snaps
, please continue to check the system as not all registration reviews are posted at the same time.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE FY2012 REGISTRATIONS SUBMITTED TO HUD:
During the registration review, HUD uploaded corrected GIW(s) and corrected the Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) for most CoCs. As many CoCs are aware, the Administration Costs column did not calculate properly on the GIWS which resulted in an incorrect ARD amount. HUD corrected the calculation error and in most cases, this changed the Annual Renewal Demand. The GIW with the corrected Administration Costs was also attached during HUD review.
CoCs will see “CoC Review” under the Funding Opportunity Name/Step Name on the “Submissions” page in e-snaps which means that their registration is ready for review, approval, and submission by the CoC.
The e-snaps training module located on the e-snaps Training website titled CoC Registration: Applicant Profile, CoC Registration, and CoC Review has the step-by-step process CoCs need to follow for this final stage of the registration process. The CoC review information begins on page 84 of the training module.
CoCs that fell under the $10,000 amount for CoC Planning Costs will have an opportunity to request up to $10,000 during the FY2012 CoC Program application process. The planning costs in e-snaps did not allow for an amount above the 1.25 percent of the CoC FPRN; therefore, those CoCs that fell below $10,000 were not able to increase the amount to $10,000. For those CoCs affected by this error, HUD has placed the following note in the registration review: “HUD is aware that e-snaps did not correctly calculate the minimum CoC Planning amount of $10,000. As your CoC fell under the $10,000 amount for CoC planning costs during the application process, the CoC may request up to $10,000 on the CoC Planning Project Application.”
Any CoC that fails to submit its final CoC Registration by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday, October 15, 2012,
be able to apply for funds in the FY2012 CoC Competition. Only CoCs that successfully submitted the final CoC review to HUD will be able to access the CoC Consolidated Application for the FY 2012 CoC competition.
All technical questions must be submitted to the “e-snaps CoC Competition” program/system on the HUD HRE Virtual Help Desk. Program policy questions should be submitted under “CoC Program” on the HUD HRE Virtual Help Desk.
