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.

Rank and Tier Recommendations
Per the FY 2019 CoC Project Ranking and Selection Process that HPAC adopted on August 2, 2019, all applicants interested in receiving CoC funding in the FY 2019 local competition had to submit their project applications by August 22, 2019. For the FY 2019 CoC funding year the Yolo CoC received 7 project applications totaling $562,110. This is the exact amount of funding available from HUD in 2019, 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 26-30, 2019 reviewing the applications, and met on 8/30/2019 to develop a recommendation regarding the rank and tier placement of each project. The notes from that meeting are available to the public (FY2019 Coc Project Selection Subcommittee Notes), and the recommended rank and tier placement are provided below.
