This message only applies to Continuums of Care (CoCs) and their Collaborative Applicants who submitted a FY 2016 CoC Program Registration to HUD.
HUD is completing its review of each CoC’s registration for the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition in e-snaps. Over the next several days, Collaborative Applicants must go back into e-snaps to review HUD’s determination. The deadline for review is Monday, June 20, 2016 by 5:00 PM, your local time. Collaborative Applicants must log back into e-snaps and go to “CoC Review” step on the “Submission” page to access HUD’s assessment.
The e-snaps instructional guide, CoC Program Registration Instructional Guide: CoC Registration and CoC Review, includes step-by-step instructions for completing the CoC Review process in e-snaps beginning on page 63.
All Collaborative Applicants should review the following:
- CoC Claimed Geography – ensure that all of the geo 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 are accurate.
- Preliminary Pro Rata Need (PPRN) – the amount is based on the geographic area(s) selected.
- Merger Status – for those CoCs that merged, review and confirm the information approved by HUD is correct.
If the CoC disputes any part of the CoC Review, HUD will review one last time and consider the CoC's proposed changes. HUD will then 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 again and select “Submit”. All disputes must be resolved and approved by Monday, June 20, 2016 by 5:00 PM, your local time. A Collaborative Applicant has only one opportunity to dispute. If the Collaborative Applicant disagrees with HUD’s assessment the second time, they will receive a final rejection notice and will not have access to the FY 2016 CoC Consolidated Application.
Any Collaborative Applicant that fails to submit its final CoC Registration by 5:00 PM, your local time on Monday, June 20, 2016, will not be able to apply for funds in the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition. Only Collaborative Applicants that successfully submitted the final CoC review to HUD will be able to access the FY 2016 CoC Consolidated Application. Consequently, the CoC will be unable to apply for funds.
