2017 Continuum of Care Program Competition Resources 

On July 14, 2017, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Fiscal Year 2017 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition. The deadline for submitting applications to HUD is 8:00 p.m. Eastern time on September 28, 2017. This year, our CoC will apply for almost $23 million in annual funding for homeless services, most of which support 46 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. 

The Joint Office of Homeless Services will post all 2017 CoC Program Competition resources and updates here. If you have questions or need any of these materials translated into another language, please contact Erin Pidot at erin.pidot@multco.us or 503-988-2524.
