Point In Time
The Point in Time Count survey is a snapshot of homelessness on one night each year. Survey results inform Congress about the number of people experiencing homelessness in the U.S. and the effectiveness of programs and policies in decreasing those numbers. At the local level, this survey is one of several annual reports and data sources that is useful in increasing our understanding of the scope of homelessness in Maine. Given the time of year and the voluntary data collection method, this survey may not accurately represent the number of unsheltered people who experience homelessness in Maine.
Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) Application
Each year HUD releases a Continuum of Care NOFA (Notice of Funding Availability).The NOFA consists of a series of questions about local efforts to address homelessness. MCOC works hard to respond to the questions with data and narratives detailing our efforts. Projects that receive ongoing renewal funding through the Continuum must also submit Applications. If there is funding available,MCOC will issue a request for new Project proposals. CoC and Project level applications are combined and submitted to HUD.
