For all agencies who will be submitting New or Renewal Applications to the Maine Continuum of Care or the Portland Continuum of Care, you may now access “esnaps” to enter your application information. Please read all related guidance and instructions carefully. The deadline for initial submission of applications to the Maine or Portland Continuum of Care is August 15, 2016, in order to allow the Continuum time to review, score and rank all Project Level Applications prior to the final Continuum Level Application submission deadline in September. Please contact the Chairs of your Continuum, or Scott Tibbitts at MaineHousing, for more information.
FY 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition: e-snaps is now Available
The FY 2016 Project Applications and Continuum of Care (CoC) Consolidated Application (CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing) are now available in e-snaps at www.hud.gov/esnaps. Project applicants and CoC Applicants can now access the applications to review, update, and enter information that is required for the application process through the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition NOFA.
Submission Deadline: Wednesday, September 14, 2016
Returning project applicants can choose to import the FY 2015 renewal project application responses; however, this must be requested during your registration of the Renewal Funding Opportunity in e-snaps and is only available if you submitted a renewal project application in last year’s FY 2015 CoC Program Competition. If you do import last year’s responses, be sure to carefully review those imported responses to ensure they are still accurate and representative of the project.
If this is the first renewal project application for your organization, you must complete the entire renewal project application.
All new project applications must also complete the entire new project application.
The CoC Priority Listing Instruction Guide will be available by Friday, July 29, 2016.
The CoC Application and the CoC Priority Listing are separate submissions in e-snaps; therefore, Collaborative Applicants must ensure that both the CoC Application and the CoC Priority Listing, with all project applications either approved and ranked or rejected, are submitted in e-snaps prior to the application submission deadline.
