Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and Tribes to prevent and address homelessness and support rehousing individuals and families in need. Project applications must be submitted a minimum of 30 days prior to the deadline. Applicants applying for a project in a formula area that is not currently included in their Continuum of Care's geographic area must email the funding source to add the formula area to the CoC’s geographic area.

The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program (24 CFR part 578) is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, Indian Tribes or tribally designated housing entities (as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103) (TDHEs)), and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness. 

The goal of the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is to support the development and implementation of a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness and sharing that experience with and mobilizing communities around the country toward the same end. The population to be served by the demonstration program is youth experiencing homelessness, including unaccompanied and pregnant or parenting youth.

Term of Contract:

The initial grant term for new project applications may be 1-year, 2-years, 3-years, 4-years, 5-years, or 15-years. The grant term may be extended consistent with 2 CFR 200.308 and 2 CFR 200.309. However, exceptions apply. See page 33 of the Program NOFO in Supporting Documents below.


Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible project applicants for the CoC Program Competition are found at 24 CFR 578.15 and include nonprofit organizations; state governments; local governments; instrumentalities of state and local governments; Indian Tribes and tribally designated housing entities, as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103); and public housing agencies, as such term is defined in 24 CFR 5.100, are eligible without limitation or exclusion. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.

HUD does not award grants to individuals. HUD will also not evaluate applications from ineligible applicants.

1. Collaborative Applicants. Only those CoCs with a valid registration for FY 2021 will have access to the FY 2021 CoC Consolidated Application, which includes the CoC Application, CoC Priority Listing, and the project application(s). CoCs should not attempt to change Collaborative Applicants during the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition without HUD's prior approval unless HUD replaces the CoC's designated Collaborative Applicant under the authority of Section 402(c) of the Act. HUD will approve Collaborative Applicant changes outside the annual CoC Program Registration process under the following circumstances:
a. the Collaborative Applicant made an error when entering the Collaborative Applicant name in the CoC Applicant Profile;
b. the Collaborative Applicant designated by the CoC is no longer in business;
c. the CoC selected a new Collaborative Applicant; or
d. a new Collaborative Applicant was selected by HUD as a remedial action under Section 402(c) of the Act.

In cases where the CoC needs to change the Collaborative Applicant approved during the FY 2021 CoC Program Registration process, the CoC must notify the local HUD CPD field office, in writing, stating the reason for the Collaborative Applicant change. The notice to HUD must provide documentation of the CoC's approval of the change (e.g., a copy of the meeting minutes to include the date and attendees).

2. Project Applicants. Eligible project applicants for the CoC Program are identified in Section V.A of the NOFO. For-profit entities are ineligible, and applications submitted from these entities will not be reviewed.

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for submitting applications to HUD for the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition is 8:00 PM EST on November 16, 2021.

Project Application. All project applications are required to be submitted to the CoC no later than 30 days before the application submission deadline to HUD of November 16, 2021 by 8:00 PM EST.

A Collaborative Applicant that intends to apply for a project in a formula area that is not a metropolitan city, urban county, town, village, or other nonentitlement area and is not currently included in their CoC’s geographic area may add the formula area to the CoC’s geographic area by sending an email to HUD with the following information:
1. The name of the CoC; and
2. The name of the tribe(s) assigned to the formula area(s) that the Collaborative Applicant is seeking to add.
The message must be submitted to HUD by October 22, 2021. The formula area must be either contiguous to the CoC’s existing geographic area or the formula area must overlap with the CoC’s existing geographic area. HUD will review the request and respond to the Collaborative Applicant indicating whether the formula area indicated is eligible to be included in the CoC’s geographic area. Because the PPRN formula does not assign values to formula areas that are not metropolitan cities, urban counties, towns, villages, or other nonentitlement areas, there will be no changes to the CoC’s PPRN. Collaborative Applicants can find a list of formula areas on the CoC Program Competition page on HUD’s website. The addition of a formula area to the CoC’s geographic area will only affect this year’s CoC Program Competition. If a CoC wants to include the formula area to its geographic area for future CoC Program Competitions, the Collaborative Applicant must include the formula area in the next CoC Registration process.

1. SAM Registration Requirement. Applicants must be registered with before submitting their application. In addition, Applicants must maintain an active SAM registration with current information while they have an active Federal award or an application or plan under consideration by HUD.
2. DUNS Number Requirement. Applicants must provide a valid DUNS number, registered and active at, in the application. DUNS numbers may be obtained for free from Dun & Bradstreet.

HUD will make appropriate resources available for technical assistance related to e-snaps, the electronic CoC program application and grants management system. Local HUD CPD Field Office staff will also be available to help citizens identify organizations in the community that are involved in developing the CoC system. All of HUD’s responses to e-snaps technical assistance and other questions received will be made publicly available for review by any applicant or potential applicant.

Collaborative Applicants and project applicants that need assistance completing the applications in e-snaps or understanding the program requirements under the CoC Program may access the Rule, training materials, and program resources via
