SNAPS Weekly Focus “Changing the Way We Do Business”


The SNAPS Office has traditionally used the annual Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Homeless Assistance Competition to communicate and implement our policy priorities in a given year.  The implementation of the new programs authorized under the HEARTH Act has given us an opportunity to review our past practices and identify what we have done well in the past, and what we need to improve going forward.  For the first time in 2013, HUD will precede the release of the NOFA with a 10-week communication strategy in which we focus on a particular topic or priority each week.
