HUD 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 timing of the NOFA varies from year to year. The two parts of the CoC Application are briefly explained below:
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.
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.
