The CoC NOFO Program promotes a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness by providing funds for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness.

The FY2022 Local RFP is a combined application for both the annual CoC NOFO competition and the Special NOFO Competition. Applicants will have the opportunity to apply for new or renewal projects as part as the annual CoC NOFO competition, as well as the opportunity to apply for new projects through the Special NOFO, which has a focus on unsheltered homelessness. Applicants applying for more than one project will need to submit separate applications for each project.

Funds available through CoC Annual NOFO: 
$3,771,354 for Annual Renewal Demand
$335,259 for new projects dealing with domestic violence, dating violence, stalking or human trafficking
$188,568 for  new projects dealing with families and individuals experiencing homelessness

Funds available through Special NOFO focused on unsheltered: $3,924,294

The purpose of this Special NOFO to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness (Special NOFO) is to target efforts to reduce unsheltered homelessness, particularly in communities with very high levels of unsheltered homelessness and homelessness in rural areas.

Through this Special NOFO, HUD will award funding to communities to implement coordinated approaches — grounded in Housing First and public health principles — to reduce the prevalence of unsheltered homelessness, and improve services engagement, health outcomes, and housing stability among highly vulnerable unsheltered individuals and families.

HUD expects applicant communities to partner with health care and housing agencies to leverage mainstream housing and health care resources.
