2023 Continuum of Care NOFO (Notice of Funding Opportunity)
On July 5, 2023, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) published the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Program.
The NOFO 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). A summary of highlights from the NOFO is provided in the document below.
The San Mateo County Human Services Agency, as the CoC Lead Agency, must develop the local competition timeline and application materials. Information is posted below, and this page will be updated with additional information as it becomes available. Please check back frequently for new information.
If you have any questions about the NOFO process, please send them to HSA’s Center on Homelessness (HSA_Homeless_Programs@smcgov.org), Hana Gossett (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Vanessa Fenley (email@example.com). Please send questions to all three contacts in order to receive the timeliest response possible.
