There are 23 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 Wednesday, September 14, 2016 by 7:59:59 PM EDT. CoCs should allow ample time to complete the FY 2016 CoC Consolidated Applications, and not wait until the last minute to submit the CoC Consolidated Applications in e-snaps to HUD. HUD strongly recommends that Collaborative Applicants submit their applications at least 24 to 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.
FY 2015 Denied or Decrease Funding Appeals
HUD continues to address the FY 2015 denied or decreased funding appeals that were submitted by the 45-day deadline noted in Section X.D. of the FY 2015 CoC Program Competition NOFA. Questions have been submitted to the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal about how to address projects that have an appeal pending at HUD. HUD is providing the following guidance:
- Denied Funding Appeals – CoCs must not rank projects pending a denied funding appeal on their CoC Priority Listing at this time.
- Reduced Funding Appeals – project applicants should submit renewal projects based on HUD’s actual award amount, not the amount that they requested, or that is under appeal.
In both types of appeals mentioned, if HUD does reverse its initial denial or reduction of funding, HUD will notify both the project applicant and Collaborative Applicant via email. The email will include any adjustments to the CoC’s Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) amount and any adjustments to the CoC’s available amount for the permanent housing bonus and the Collaborative Applicant’s amount available for CoC planning costs. Any reversals made based on the denied or decreased funding decision will be provided by Wednesday, August 31, 2016.
