This 1-day training is intended for recipients and subrecipients of Fiscal Year 2015 Continuum of Care Program funds. It provides a chance to learn about program requirements and new rules, find out where to find answers to questions that come up during grant implementation, and get guidance and helpful hints on how to implement your project well.

CoC Program Startup Training for FY2015 Grants will be a full-day training focused on issues relevant to all grants. The approach is to offer consistent information on a range of important topics, show participants how to find more information on the HUD Exchange and HUD-published resources or Frequently Asked Questions, practice implementing complicated topics using tools and case scenarios together, and providing written materials for future reference.

Topics will be customized by field office. Examples of available topics include:
 Program Components and Eligible Costs
 Match
 Eligible Program Participants – Homeless, Disability and Chronic Homeless Status
 Rent Reasonableness and FMR
 Leasing Costs & Requirements
 Rental Assistance Costs & Requirements
 Property Requirements
 Project Changes and Timeliness Standards
 Recordkeeping Requirements
 Monitoring and Compliance
 Other Program Requirements
 Equal Access Rule
 HUD Priorities, such as System Performance Measurement, HMIS, and Coordinated Entry

Recipients and subrecipients of new or renewal CoC Program funds are encouraged to attend this training. The training will be most relevant to those agency staff directly involved with the administration and day-to-day operation of the grant, the financial staff, and those who help develop reports and program policies.
