HUD CoC NOFO Competition
Notice of Funding Opportunity from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development
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, and local governments to quickly re-house 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; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO), signifying the beginning of a funding competition among approximately 450 CoCs, the community stakeholder groups that guide local responses to homelessness. The 2023 CoC NOFO was released on July 5, 2023, opening the competition making available approximately $3.1 billion nationally to serve people experiencing homelessness. The information in the NOFO sets forth the competition rules and processes each year.
The CoC Competition Consolidated Application, which each CoC submits to HUD, will consist of three parts:
Before the application is submitted to HUD, the CoC is required to hold a local competition to determine which project applications will be included in the Consolidated Application, along with their relative priority. The results of the local competition dictate which projects the CoC will prioritize.

2023 Technical Assistance Workshop
This year there is funding available in four categories:
Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) Funding: This funding supports the CoC’s existing housing and services. The CoC has the option to continue to support those programs, or to reallocate those resources, in whole or in part, to Permanent Supportive Housing, Rapid Rehousing, Joint Transitional Housing/Rapid Rehousing, HMIS, or Supportive Services Only Projects for Coordinated Entry. For Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) communities, ARD also includes YHDP renewal and replacement projects, which are not ranked except for YHDP projects funded in Round 1.
CoC Bonus Funding: This funding also supports Permanent Supportive Housing, Rapid Rehousing, Joint Transitional Housing/Rapid Rehousing, HMIS, or Supportive Services Only Projects for Coordinated Entry.
Domestic Violence Bonus (DV Bonus) Funding: This funding supports Rapid Rehousing, Joint Transitional Housing/Rapid Rehousing, or Supportive Services Only Projects for Coordinated Entry.
CoC Planning Funds: This funding supports CoC planning activities, and only the CoC’s named collaborative applicant may apply for it. The planning grant will not be ranked in the competition and is not competitive with housing or service projects. As such, this Handbook does not include information about applying for planning grants.
In 2023, funds are NOT available for:
- ⇒ Emergency shelter
- ⇒ Homelessness prevention projects
- ⇒ New Transitional Housing (except when joint with Rapid Rehousing)
- ⇒ New Supportive Services Only projects (except coordinated entry)
