FY 2019 Continuum of Care Competition
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that local Continuums of Care (CoC) prioritize the projects submitted in our consolidated application. As in past years, project priorities will be generated by a scoring system, site visits and interviews by an impartial Evaluation Committee made up of local funders and former funder volunteers.
In the national competition, CoC's are scored on the quality of their annual evaluation and monitoring of the renewal projects submitted in the Continuum's collaborative package. In addition, annual evaluation allows the CoC to determine whether existing projects are addressing current needs, and to make adjustments in the system. Renewal project evaluations are used both to set a bar for high performance, and to select possible resources to be reallocated through the CoC application.
2019 Continuum of Care Renewal Evaluation Process
On March 26, 2019 the memorandum, schedule of events, and supporting documents for the FY 2019 Continuum of Care Renewal Evaluation Process were posted.
Materials that need to be submitted are listed on page 4 of the memo and must be submitted by 5:00pm on April 22nd, 2019 electronically or in person. The Performance Management and Evaluation Task Group will begin review of materials in May with support from the CoC NOFA Team with the Sonoma County Community Development Commission (CoC Lead Agency). However, final rating and ranking will not be done until after the NOFA period opens and new project funding is released. Final ranking and rating will be conducted with new project scoring. We anticipate that happening in June or July 2019, and the HOME Sonoma County Leadership Council will make final decisions on rating and ranking no later than 30 days before the close of the NOFA period this summer/fall. The draft scoring schema may be changed slightly be the PM&E Task Group, but as the scoring is based on HUD System Performance Measures and HUD priorities, it will likely remain largely the same. Agencies new to Continuum of Care funding are highly encouraged to apply for Continuum of Care funding when the CoC Competition opens and should reach out to the CoC Coordinator, Michael Gause, at Michael.Gause@sonoma-county.org.
