HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) Application

The annual CoC application is composed of two parts; the Consolidated Application and the Priority Listing. The details regarding HUD priorities and additional threshold requirements are released for each funding year at the time of HUD’s Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the CoC Program. The 2017 NOFA was released on July 14th, 2017. The two parts of the CoC Application are briefly explained below:

Consolidated Application and HUD Project Priority Listing

The Consolidated Application is prepared and submitted by the DuPage County CoC’s designated Collaborative Applicant, DuPage County Community Services. HUD assesses CoCs nationwide on system-wide performance outcomes and coordination and scores and ranks CoCs accordingly to determine which CoCs will receive funding priority for project applications submitted by the CoC in the Priority Listing.

2017 HUD CoC NOFA Application

The DuPage County CoC has established a local process for assessing local gaps and needs, determining funding priorities for its CoC program, determining possible reallocations, inviting, reviewing, scoring and ranking projects according to successful performance that reflects the project’s ability to assist with addressing system-wide progress towards ending homelessness.  The DuPage County CoC has established policies and procedures for this process.

All information regarding reallocation policy and procedure, local ranking, selection criteria and decision making processes can be found in the links below:

DuPage County Continuum of Care Process for Reallocation 

This will notify all DuPage County Continuum of Care (CoC) members and stakeholders of the Reallocation policy re-adopted by the DuPage CoC Leadership Committee on 8-9-17.

All new and existing homeless providers were encouraged to apply for new projects through reallocation in the 2017 CoC Funding Competition.

It is the CoC’s responsibility to strategically determine how to best use the resources available to end homelessness within our community.

The CoC may reallocate funds from projects which are seen as lower performing and/or are not cost effective in order to create higher performing, cost effective projects.

2017 Rating and Review Process Documents

Posted 09/05/17

The DuPage County Continuum of Care is posting its Rating and Review Process documents for the 2017 Continuum of Care funding competition. We are making local ranking, selection criteria and decision making processes available for public inspection on the DuPage County website. These document the existence of a coordinated, inclusive, and outcome-oriented community process for the solicitation, objective review, ranking, and selection of CoC Program project applications.  All project applications are evaluated and ranked based on the degree to which they improve the CoC system performance. The selection process includes reallocating from lower performing projects to higher performing projects. The documentation clearly demonstrates the CoC used objective criteria (e.g., project type, project performance, funding expenditures, monitoring results) in the review, ranking, and selection process for the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition. All documents related to the application, ranking, review and selection process are posted for public inspection. A 09/05/17 email announcement to the Continuum contact list informed community stakeholders that these materials are available for inspection here on our website.
