2019 Continuum of Care Program Competition Resources
On July 3, 2019, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Fiscal Year 2019 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition. The deadline for submitting applications to HUD is 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on September 30, 2019. This year, our CoC will apply for $26.2 million in annual funding for homeless services, most of which support 40 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 2019 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 email@example.com or 503-988-2524.

2019 CoC Reallocation Process
Reallocation is a process that CoCs use to shift funds in whole or part from existing eligible renewal projects to create one or more new projects without decreasing the CoC’s Annual Renewal Demand (the amount of renewal funding we are eligible to apply for in a given year). HUD prioritizes funding for CoC’s that demonstrate the ability to reallocate resources to higher performing projects. In 2019, $68,898 was reallocated to new projects based on the annual CoC solicitation process described below.
2019 NEW OR EXPANDED PERMANENT HOUSING PROJECTS Solicitations
There was an optional info session on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at the Joint Office of Homeless Services.
Pre-applications are due by Wednesday, August 14, 2019 by end of day (11:59 PM).
BONUS AND REALLOCATION
A Home for Everyone is seeking applications for new or expanded projects to provide permanent housing for people experiencing homelessness. Priority will be given to projects that will most effectively address the housing and service needs for a community of color that is over-represented in Multnomah County’s homeless population, and projects that will most effectively address these needs for LGBTQ people of color. Multiple projects serving different and/or overlapping populations may be selected. Selected projects will be invited to apply for renewable federal funding totaling $1.2 million annually.
