There are 3 days remaining until the application submission deadline for the FY 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition. The FY 2016 CoC Consolidated Applications, that includes the CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing with all project applications either approved and ranked or rejected, are due September 14, 2016 by 7:59:59 PM EDT. Please allow ample time to complete your FY 2016 CoC Consolidated Application, and do not wait until the last minute to submit via e-snaps to HUD. HUD strongly recommends that Collaborative Applicants submit their applications at least 24 - 48 hours before the deadline. See Section VI. Application and Submission Information of the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition NOFA for application submission and timely receipt requirements for the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition.
The CoC Application and the CoC Priority Listing are separate submissions in e-snaps; therefore, Collaborative Applicants must ensure that both the CoC Application and the CoC Priority Listing, with all project applications either approved and ranked or rejected, are submitted in e-snaps prior to the application submission deadline of September 14, 2016 by 7:59:59 PM EDT.
All information related to the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition is communicated via the HUD Exchange Mailing List. Join the mailing list to receive important updates and reminders. HUD will communicate via listserv messages:
- Due date reminders – it is the sole responsibility of Collaborative Applicants and their project applicants to submit the CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing containing all project applications by the due date and time.
- Important updates or additional information – the additional information will not change the selection criteria or selection process included in the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition NOFA, but may include items such as updates on the status of e-snaps and reminders of impending deadlines.
If you are aware or suspect that the Collaborative Applicant, CoC members, or interested stakeholders are not currently receiving these listserv messages, please forward the following link, https://www.hudexchange.info/mailinglist/, to them to register for the listserv messages as this is the only form of communication used by HUD to the public.
