The Maine Continuum of Care Consolidated Application for HUD Homeless Assistance Program Funding and the accompanying Project Priority Listing for 2021 are now complete! This was a particularly challenging year – HUD skipped the Application process last year, so we were all a little out of practice, and this was the first time everything, from the NOFO Committee meetings to the Selection, Scoring and Ranking of Projects was handled entirely remotely!
Thank you to EVERYONE who worked so hard – whether on the CoC level application, one or more project level applications, participating on committees or in discussions at various meetings – to help us collect and assemble all the information that goes into this final product. It is a tremendous amount of work, but it is just the beginning – the projects created and funded through this process will help to provide housing and related services to some of the most vulnerable members of our communities every single day, and that makes it worth all the effort. Thank you again![The Application and the Listing are submitted to HUD electronically through a system called “esnaps”. The PDF versions here are generated by that system. For those not familiar with esnaps, narrative answers have specific character count limits, so lots of abbreviations and acronyms are used to save space and pack as much information into each box as possible. If you have any questions about any of the information here, feel free to send us an email at .]
