VCEH seeks RFPs: HUD Continuum of Care Notice of Funding Opportunity

HUD has opened the Continuum of Care (CoC) competition for the 2021 Fiscal Year!

A Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) has been published by the US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).

In response to the NOFO, the Vermont Coalition to End Homelessness, as the Vermont Balance of State Continuum of Care (VT BoS CoC – VT-500), has issued a Request for Proposals for projects to be submitted for funding to HUD for the FY21 Competition. Application deadlines are in the RFP, which can be found here.

Applications will be submitted to the Vermont State Housing Authority (VSHA), who serves as the “Collaborative Applicant” for the Vermont Balance of State Continuum of Care geographic area.  The VT BoS CoC geographic area encompasses all counties in Vermont, except Chittenden.

Eligible project applicants for the CoC Program Competition include nonprofit organizations; state governments; local governments; instrumentalities of state and local governments; Indian Tribes and tribally designated housing entities; and public housing agencies are eligible without limitation or exclusion.

We are seeking proposals to provide housing and service priorities with a priority to serve vulnerable populations including individuals & families experiencing chronic homelessness, persons fleeing domestic violence and families with children under 18.
