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 Opportunity (NOFO) for the CoC Program.  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.
