HUD Announces $2.76 Billion in Awards to Help People Experiencing Homelessness   Today, HUD announced $2.76 billion in FY 2022 Continuum of Care (CoC) Competition Awards in approximately 7,000 local homeless housing and service programs across the U.S. and its territories. These CoC grants provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, and local governments to quickly rehouse individuals and families experiencing homelessness and provide support while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness.   

This announcement details the New and Renewal Project Application Awards – click the highlighted link in the paragraph above to go to the site for more info. The announcement did not include our ‘Score’ for the MCOC NOFO Application or any other debriefing details. However, I think it is safe to say that we must have done well for so many of these Projects to have been approved. Unfortunately, we did have one New Project proposal that was not included in this list – we had included it with our submission in case some other project was not funded, or on the off chance that more funding became available, but we knew it was outside our original allocation. The chart, below, shows all the individual MCOC Projects, the amount of funding they requested, and what they were awarded. Some projects received more than the amounts requested due to HUD adjusting the FMR (Fair Market Rent) amounts prior to issuing the awards.

I would like to thank everyone who helped in the 2022 MCOC NOFO Application process – whether at the Project level, the Continuum level, or both. It is a pleasure to work with such a knowledgeable and dedicated group of people!
