CONTINUUM OF CARE (COC) COMPETITIONS AND NOTICE OF FUNDING AVAILABILITY (NOFA) PROCESS
In 1995, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) began to require communities to submit a single application for McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Grants in order to streamline the funding application process, encourage coordination of housing and service providers on a local level, and promote the development of CoCs. By requiring communities to submit a single application, HUD hoped to encourage a more structural and strategic approach to both housing and providing services to homeless people. A CoC would provide this more strategic system by providing homeless people with housing and services appropriate to their range of needs.
Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) is the lead applicant for Anchorage CoC. For more information regarding the CoC process, please visit the HUD website. As part of the yearly process to access HUD CoC funds for Anchorage, ACEH shares information on the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) and specific timelines and processes on this page.
