Additional Clarification on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 as it pertains to the FY 2013 – FY 2014 CoC Program NOFA’s requirement of a commitment letter for nonprofit organizations applying for rental assistance:
: I am a nonprofit applying for CoC Program funds. Am I required to have a commitment letter from a State, unit of general local government, or public housing agency that is dated by the application submission deadline as required in Section II.B.5 of the FY 2013 – FY 2014 CoC Program NOFA?
: No. Because the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 contained language permitting nonprofits to administer rental assistance, nonprofit organizations are no longer required to obtain a commitment letter from a State, unit of general local government, or a public housing agency agreeing to administer the rental assistance awarded under the grant on the nonprofits behalf. Nonprofit organizations are now able to administer rental assistance.
