This message only applies to Continuums of Care (CoCs) and their Collaborative Applicants. This is phase 2 of the process in which CoCs will review HUD’s determination.
The FY 2019 CoC Program Registration Review step is now available for all CoCs—both Collaborative Applicants that submitted the FY 2019 Registration by March 14, 2019 and those for which HUD moved the registration forms forward.
Collaborative Applicants should access e-snaps at https://esnaps.hud.gov to review HUD’s determination and either agree and submit, at which point the CoC is done, or disagree and submit, at which point the registration will be returned to HUD for one final review and then returned to the Collaborative Applicant for approval.
Collaborative Applicants that disagree with HUD’s determinations must resolve all disputes by 3:00 PM your local time on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
- Collaborative Applicants that requested Unified Funding Agency (UFA) designation: If you requested UFA designation, you will not see the CoC Review step until April 15, 2019 as HUD is finalizing the review of these designation requests. The April 23, 2019 still applies.
No CoCs requested High Performing Community (HPC) designation.
As with the initial registration process, if a CoC’s Collaborative Applicant does not submit the CoC Review step by Tuesday, April 23, 2019, HUD will automatically move the CoC Review forward on behalf of the CoC and Collaborative Applicant to ensure the Collaborative Applicant has access to the FY 2019 CoC Consolidated Application.
- This option does not apply to Collaborative Applicants that requested UFA designation; you must complete the CoC Review step. HUD will not automatically move your CoC Review forward.
CoC Review Step Instructions
All Collaborative Applicants are advised to review the CoC Review step.
Step 1 – Log in to e-snaps and review the following:
- Collaborative Applicant designation as “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 any changes that may have been made by HUD after consultation with the CoC’s Collaborative Applicant are accurate.
Step 2 – Either approve or disagree with the information reviewed in Step 1.
- If the Collaborative Applicant agrees, it submits approval in e-snaps at which point the FY 2019 CoC Program Registration process is complete, and the Collaborative Applicant will have access to the FY 2019 CoC Consolidated Application when the FY 2019 CoC Program Competition opens.
- If the Collaborative Applicant disagrees, it submits the CoC Review with disapproval, at which point HUD will review one final time.
Step 3 – only for Collaborative Applicants that disagreed with HUD's decision in Step 2.
- 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 need to log into e-snaps to access the CoC Review HUD Final Decision step and select “Submit.”
- If the Collaborative Applicant agrees in this step and submits approval in e-snaps, HUD will provide access to the FY 2019 CoC Consolidated Application when the FY 2019 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 2019 CoC Consolidated Application.
All disputes must be resolved and approved by 3:00 PM your local time on Tuesday, April 23, 2019. A Collaborative Applicant has only one opportunity to dispute HUD’s determination.
