2016 Continuum of Care Resources


2016 CoC Consolidated Application - Submitted

The CoC Consolidated Application was submitted by the Joint Office of Homeless Services to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on September 13, 2016 at 4:00 PM. The application is for more than $20 million in annual funding for homeless services, most of which support 47 existing permanent and transitional housing programs operated by more than 18 local nonprofits and governments. Together these programs help to house more than 1,500 formerly homeless households throughout Multnomah County. We expect to hear back from HUD in early 2017 and will post an update here when we do.

Overview of 2016 CoC Process and Outcomes 


Renewal projects

Renewal project applications are due on August 12 at 5 PM.


2016 Permanent Housing Bonus Project Solicitation

Information session on August 3 from 12:00 - 2:00 PM at the Joint Office of Homeless Services (421 SW Oak, Suite 105).                   Bonus project applications are due on August 11 at 5:00 PM.


New projects

The Resource Advisory Committee has elected to allow projects currently operating as Transitional Housing to voluntarily reallocate their funds to new permanent housing projects under the conditions allowed within the 2016 NOFA. Projects choosing to do this and selected bonus projects must complete a new project application. Reallocated project applications are due on August 12 at 5 PM. Selected bonus project applications are due on August 24 at 5 PM (these projects will be notified of their selection by August 17). 


Resource Advisory Committee meetings

The Resource Advisory Committee (RAC) is comprised of non-conflicted members of the AHFE Coordinating Board (i.e. members who do not work for an organization receiving CoC-funding). At its July 6, 2016 meeting, the Coordinating Board reauthorized the RAC to finalize rating and ranking criteria, use these criteria to rate and rank renewal projects, develop a solicitation process for new bonus projects and new projects funded through reallocation, and select new projects to include in our 2016 CoC application. The RAC conducted this work over the course of two meetings.
