On September 18, 2015 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Program.

The NOFA can be accessed at htttp://www.hudexchange.info.  It establishes this year’s funding criteria for the Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Programs (sometimes also referred to as the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act programs).

All CoCs and project applicants are required to apply for the 2015 CoC competition electronically through HUD’s e-snaps system at http://www.hud.gov/esnaps.  No paper applications will be accepted.

The deadline for San Mateo County to submit our CoC application to HUD is November 20, 2015.  Our local deadline for applicants to submit their requests for new project funding to the CoC Lead Agency, the San Mateo County Human Services Agency, Center on Homelessness, is October 20, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. 

More information on the local process and time line is available in the documents below.
