FY 2022 HUD CoC Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFO)

This traditional NOFO that brings over $5 million annually into our tri-county area to address homelessness locally has been posted on grants.gov and will soon be available on the Funding Opportunities page on HUD’s website. Additional resources will be available on the Continuum of Care Program Competition page of HUD’s website

In the coming days and weeks MACCH will be communicating additional information about this year’s local competition. However, for interested parties the most important thing right now is to read the NOFO and be on the lookout for additional communications regarding the local competitions here, on our listserv, and social media. 

HUD CoC Program Supplemental NOFO and Traditional NOFO - Important Information

MACCH intends to apply for the HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Unsheltered Homelessness. This is a public notification that MACCH is soliciting for new projects that are eligible under the Supplemental NOFO. More information about eligible projects may be found by reviewing the webinar slides from HUD (specifically slides 19-25). MACCH will be accepting Intent to Submit New Projects for the Supplemental NOFO for the following project types:


Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH)
Rapid Rehousing (RRH)
Joint Transitional Housing (TH)-RRH
Supportive Services Only – Street Outreach (SSO-SO)
and Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)

The Intent to Submit New Projects for the Supplemental NOFO is due to MACCH no later than 5pm on Friday, August 5th, 2022. Please send the completed form to Lisa Vukov at lvukov@endhomelessnesstoday.org Only those proposed projects that have submitted the Intent to Submit will be able to move forward with completing the new project preliminary application, which will be released on or before Friday, August 12th, 2022.  

Additionally, MACCH will be hosting a webinar that will cover important information contained within the current Supplemental NOFO, as well as the traditional HUD CoC Program NOFO (which is expected to be released early next week) on Wednesday, August 10th from 11am – 1pm. Any agencies interested in applying for new projects under either the Supplemental or traditional NOFO, as well as agencies with renewal projects under the traditional NOFO, are strongly encouraged to participate in this important webinar on August 10th.
