The Maine Continuum of Care will be meeting on Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 1:00 to 3:00 – one week earlier than usual so that we can approve this year’s NOFA application prior to the submission deadline on September 18th.

The Bangor Library was not available for this meeting but other Tandberg Locations are, and there is a call in number as well.

For those  calling in to the Maine Continuum of Care Meeting this month, please use this number: 866-6426  – not the one on the agenda – sorry for any confusion.

MCOC Deadline Extended 24 Hours

In light of the unexpected availability of an additional $376,945 in Reallocated Funding, the Maine Continuum of Care voted today to extend the Application Submission Deadline by 24 hours in order to allow potential applicants a bit more time to develop and submit New Project Applications to utilize these funds. All Applications must be submitted to MCOC via esnaps before midnight, Saturday, August 18, 2018.  We cannot extend the deadline beyond this and still be in compliance with HUD requirements.  If you have any questions please contact Scott Tibbitts,

Additional Reallocation Funding Available

Due to a last minute notification that some projects would not be renewing this year, there is now an additional $376,945 of reallocated funds available for eligible new projects.

More information will be provided at tomorrow’s MCOC meeting,  but the MCOC Chairs felt strongly that the MCOC should know about this as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions please reach out to the chairs or to Scott Tibbitts.  Thank you – The MCOC Chairs (Awa, Rob, and Vickey)”
