Beginning with the FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition, HUD is changing the process for Collaborative Applicants to register CoCs for CoC Program Competitions. Instead of a single Registration Notice encompassing all parts of the registration process, HUD is issuing three separate standing notices that remain effective until they are amended, superseded, or rescinded:
- CoC Program Registration Notice (basic registration)
- CoC Program Unified Funding Agency (UFA) Notice
- CoC Program High Performing Community (HPC) Notice
The Registration Notice is now available on the HUD Exchange through the FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition: Funding Availability page. HUD will post the UFA Notice and HPC Notice on the same page in the near future and notify the public via the HUD Exchange mailing list. While e-snaps is not available now, HUD will issue a separate listserv message when e-snaps is available–including the submission deadline–and post this information to the HUD Exchange.
New in FY 2018
Collaborative Applicants for CoCs that have changes from the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition (e.g., change in Collaborative Applicant, CoCs merged, change in geographic codes) should complete the registration forms to gain access to the Consolidated Application in the FY 2018 CoC Program Competition that includes the CoC Application, the CoC Priority Listing, and project applications. If a CoC has no changes from the previous year’s CoC Program Competition and the Collaborative Applicant chooses not to complete the registration forms, HUD will move the previous year’s CoC Program Registration information forward with no changes (see Section I of the CoC Program Registration Notice).
HUD has posted the FY 2018 CoC Names and Numbers document and the FY 2018 Geographic Codes document that provides the geographic codes that have been added or removed. Preliminary Pro Rata Need (PPRN) amounts are not available at this time but will be provided once the FY 2018 CoC Program Competition opens later this year.
