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.

ACEH is the lead applicant for Anchorage. For more information regarding the CoC process, please visit the HUD website. As part of the yearly process to access HUD CoC ACEH shares information on NOFA and specific timelines and processes on this page.
