Local Applications – Applications Closed on August 30, 2022

The Grand Rapids Area Coalition to End Homelessness (Coalition) invites applications under HUD’s FY 2022 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition for renewal, new, and bonus projects at this time. The opening of this local competition for projects serving Kent County is in accordance with the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the 2022 Continuum of Care Program by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The Coalition will concurrently consider both renewal project applications as well as new and bonus projects (including permanent housing bonus projects and domestic violence bonus projects). The Coalition will submit one collaborative “Continuum of Care Application” for 2022 that reflects community-wide planning and performance. The score received for this application will be applied to funding requested for FY 2022 funds.

For FY 2022 renewal projects, the Coalition is eligible to apply to HUD for a maximum of $7,376,285, which constitutes the Annual Renewal Demand (ARD). The ARD is the total sum of all renewal projects eligible for renewal. This year, the Coalition is eligible to apply for a total of $368,814 in general CoC bonus projects and a total of $456,962 in domestic violence bonus projects. All interested and qualified parties are invited to submit a new project application that will be reviewed and scored along with renewal projects.

Below you will find a detailed instructional document, relevant CoC policy documents, and application forms and scorecards that will be utilized to score project applications. Agencies should review the instructional document carefully prior to submitting an application.

Changes from FY2021:

  • In addition to the submission of an application for each project, each agency will be required to submit one supplemental application. The score on this application will be utilized for all that agency’s submitted projects.
  • Applications will be submitted via an online form. Form links are available below.
