Continuum of Care (CoC) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA)
Each year the United State Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases a NOFA for its CoC program. The CoC program is designed to provide funding for nonprofit providers and local governments to quickly rehouse individuals and families experiencing homelessness while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness.
FY 2018 CoC Competition
The United Stated Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Competition on June 20, 2018. You can access additional information regarding the CoC Program and the 2018 NOFA on the HUD website.

The Homeless and Poverty Action Coalition (HPAC) formally adopted a Project Reallocation, Ranking and Selection Process for the FY 2018 CoC Competition on July 6, 2018. Interested applicants should review the process to learn more about how their applications will be ranked in the local competition.
Rank and Tier Recommendations
Per the Project Reallocation, Ranking and Selection Process that HPAC adopted on 7/6/2018, all applicants interested in receiving CoC funding in the FY 2018 local competition had to submit their project applications by 8/5/2018. For the FY 2018 CoC funding year the Yolo CoC received 7 project applications totaling $554,772. This is the exact amount of funding available from HUD in 2018, which means that no project applications will be rejected, though all projects will still be ranked and placed in either Tier 1 or Tier 2.
The Project Selection Subcommittee spent August 10th-21st, 2018 reviewing the applications, and met on 8/21/2018 to develop a recommendation regarding the rank and tier placement of each project. The notes from that meeting are available to the public (FY2018 CoC Project Selection Subcommittee Notes), and the recommended rank and tier placement are provided below.
