FY 2024 CoC Renewal Evaluations: Rating & Ranking Process for the Continuum of Care Competition (Materials due May 01, 2024)

Published: April 02, 2024

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that local CoC’s prioritize all renewal and new projects submitted in our consolidated application for the CoC Program. As in previous years, CoC staff will work on the evaluation of existing projects, also called “renewal” projects, prior to the release of HUD’s Continuum of Care Program Notice of Funding Opportunity.

Project priorities will be generated by a scoring system, site visits, and interviews by the CoC Competition Evaluation Workgroup, which is made up of community partners and those with lived experience of homelessness.

The evaluation workgroup will be open to the public, and all documents will be published and noticed publicly. Meeting information can be located here:

HUD has yet to release information on the opening of its application period but has indicated it would likely open the competition earlier than it has in the last couple of years.  We will continue the process for rating and ranking slightly adjusted in 2024 in order to evaluate both renewal and new projects on a more equitable basis.  Staff and CoC Competition Evaluation Workgroup members will begin monitoring renewal projects in May of 2024 but will not finalize the ranking of renewal projects until the Continuum of Care Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) period opens.  Renewal project materials are due May 1st by 5:00 pm, and will be posted on our website for public review.

Please note, this is for public information purposes only. We are not currently soliciting new project applications at this point in time. New project applications will be solicited to apply for this funding at a later date, after the release of the CoC NOFO.

Final funding decisions, including decisions about Tier 1 & 2 funding, will be made by the Homeless Coalition Board.
