About FFY 2022 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) & Special Notice of Opportunity (SNOFO)

The Anchorage Coalition to End Homelessness (ACEH) is the HUD-designated Continuum of Care (CoC) for the Municipality of Anchorage. Each year ACEH coordinates the submission of project and collaborative applications to fund organizational and partner programs through a competitive grant process. These grants fund the permanent and temporary housing programs in Anchorage and the coordination work done by ACEH to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; support existing projects through renewal applications; and provide an opportunity for non-profits to request funding for new projects.

This year, HUD has released two funding opportunities – the Continuum of Care (CoC) competition Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) and the Special Notice of Funding Opportunity to address Unsheltered Homelessness (SNOFO).

NOFO Frequently Asked Questions

Please reach out to grants@aceh.org if you cannot find an answer to your question.

Will applicants be able to see the AKHMIS data that is pulled for renewal applications?


In the VI: Financials section of the renewal application, is FY21 the most recent application we completed?

Your agency’s FY21 is used for the organization’s year; for HUD the FFY designation is used.

    What type of verification is needed for the 25% match?

    You must be able to bring a match that is specific to your project. Examples of matches are cash, in-kind, or partnership with services.

    In the application forms some of checkmark boxes don’t work. What should I do?

    You can copy and paste check marks from other areas or enter an “x” next to the check box.

    In part VI of the renewal application, how should I respond to the data sharing question if my organization is a DV service provider?

    Mark “no” because we know that your organization cannot provide the information because it is a DV service provider.

    What should we enter in referrals, how many gave or how many we received?

    Mark how many you received.

    In the new project application under Threshold Requirements, there is a reference to projects being renewed.

    HUD will be looking at previous projects that organizations have undertaken, regardless of whether they were HUD-related projects.

    New projects can only be 18 months?

    Yes, but new projects get more time than renewals, which are only 12 months. New DV projects are only 12 months. It depends upon the type of new project. For example, there are different contract lengths for construction, acquisition, and rehabilitation.

    New application Project Type – Should we select CoC planning or new?

    You should select “new.” The collaborative applicant (ACEH) is the only organization that can apply for planning funds.

    Application question: What types of services connections are being referred to?

    You should describe the services that your organization will provide and describe any partnerships you have that connect people to services such as health care, mental health care, childcare, employment services, and many others.

    Will there be an AHFC match?

    AHFC will send out notifications to organizations they will be able to match, which are renewals applicants only.

    How can organizations demonstrate their partnerships? MOU or letter?

    An MOU that describes the roles and services that will be provided is very helpful. If you do not have an MOU, you can provide a letter.  You can attach them to the application form.

    Can YHDP programs request an expansion or scale up this year?

    No, expansion is not allowed for YHDP programs.

    Are YHDP funds coming out of the Annual Renewal Demand (ARD)?

    Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) (24 CFR 578.17(b)(2)). The total amount of all the CoC’s projects that will be eligible for renewal in the FY 2022 CoC Program Competition, before any required adjustments to funding for leasing, rental assistance, and operating Budget Line Items (BLIs) based on FMR changes. The ARD will be calculated by combining the total amount of funds requested by eligible renewal projects from eligible:

    (1) renewal projects approved and ranked on the Renewal Project Listing;

    (2) renewal project amount(s) that were reallocated as recorded on the reduced or eliminated reallocation forms of the CoC Priority Listing;

    (3) renewal YHDP projects on the YHDP Renewal Project Listing; and

    (4) replacement YHDP projects on the YHDP Replacement Project Listing as these projects are eligible for funding as renewal YHDP projects but have chosen to submit the application as a YHDP replacement project with the amount of funding that is eligible for renewal.

    What is reallocation?

    Reallocation is a process 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 ARD. New projects created through reallocation must meet the requirements set forth in Section II.B.1 of this NOFO and the project eligibility and project quality thresholds established by HUD in Sections V.C.4.b and c of this NOFO. CoCs may only reallocate eligible renewal projects that have previously been renewed under the CoC Program. To create a Transition Grant (see Section III.B.2.cc of this NOFO), the CoC must wholly eliminate one or more projects and use those funds to create a single, new transition grant. YHDP projects cannot be reallocated. Through reallocation, CoCs can create new, evidence-informed projects by eliminating projects that are underperforming or are more appropriately funded from other sources.
