HUD plans to issue a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) targeted to Continuums of Care (CoCs) with high levels of unsheltered homelessness. Features of the NOFA will include:
- Funding will be prioritized to CoCs with high levels of unsheltered homelessness, which includes encampments
- Funding will be utilized under HUD’s CoC Program
- Applicants will develop a plan to demonstrate how they will reduce unsheltered homelessness and be assessed based on the quality of the plan
- The NOFA will place heavy emphasis on applicants demonstrating the evidence supporting their plans
More information and timeframes will be available soon. HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) will provide updates through the HUD Exchange mailing list.
