8 8 Ending Chronic Homelessness ◦Increasing beds ◦Targeting PSH turnover ◦Housing First  “…a model of housing assistance that is offered without preconditions (such as sobriety or a minimum income threshold) or service participation requirements…” (FY2013-FY2014 CoC Program NOFA) Ending Family Homelessness ◦Rapid Re-Housing for households with children who are exiting streets or emergency shelters HUD Priorities

9 9 Strategic Resource Allocation “Each CoC must comprehensively review all existing projects within its geographic area, using CoC-approved scoring criteria and selection priorities, to determine the extent to which each project is still necessary and addresses the listed policy priorities…Funds for projects that are determined to be underperforming, obsolete, or ineffective should be reallocated to new projects that are based on proven or promising models.” (FY2013-FY2014 CoC Program NOFA) HUD Priorities

10 10 Removing Barriers ◦Coordinated Access System Required ◦Transitional Housing Review ◦“HUD is strongly encouraging CoC’s and recipients to carefully review the transitional housing models within the geographic area for cost-effectiveness, performance, and for the number and type of criteria used to determine eligibility for the program and determine if rapid re-housing may be a better model for the CoC’s geographic area.” (FY2013-FY2014 CoC Program NOFA) ◦Prioritizing Households Most in Need HUD Priorities

11 11 Maximizing the use of Mainstream Resources ◦“HUD strongly encourages CoC’s and project applicants to ensure that they are maximizing the use of all mainstream services available. While the CoC Program interim rule allows for the payment of certain supportive services costs and SSO projects, it is more efficient for CoC’s to use mainstream resources where possible and use HUD funds for housing-related costs.” (FY2013-FY2014 CoC Program NOFA) HUD Priorities

12 12 Building Partnerships ◦PHA partnerships ◦Philanthropy HUD Priorities

13 13 Other Priority Populations ◦Re-allocated funding only available for chronic populations (PSH) and/or homeless households with children residing on streets or in emergency shelters (RRH) ◦Veterans  “CoC Program funded projects should… prioritize veterans who are ineligible for VA services and their families…” (FY2013-FY2014 CoC Program NOFA) ◦Homeless Youth  “CoC’s should be able to identify and describe the needs of homeless youth within the geographic area…” (FY2013-FY2014 CoC Program NOFA) HUD Priorities

22 22 Scoring and Ranking

23 23 Scoring of renewal projects was completed in September 2013 Scoring tool was developed by a community workgroup with HUD TA, disseminated for public comments, and approved by the CoC Steering Committee Scoring

24 24 All projects approved by the CoC must be ranked as Tier 1 or Tier 2 Indicate to HUD which projects are prioritized for funding in the event that the national total annual renewal demand exceeds the $1.7 billion available through this NOFA Ranking

25 25 Funding will only be available for projects ranked in Tier 1 CoCs that receive a higher score have a better chance of being awarded projects ranked in Tier 2, depending on the availability of carryover or recaptured funds Ranking

26 26 Financial Threshold Tier 1 - Equal to the CoC’s Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) approved in the Registration process, less 5 percent. Tier 2 - the amount remaining in ARD plus the approved amounts for CoC Planning and UFA Costs Ranking

27 27 All projects will be included on the CoC’s Priority Listings in e-snaps HUD will select all projects in Tier 1 before selecting any projects in Tier 2 until no additional funds are available. This means that lower ranked projects may be selected for funding above higher ranked projects. Ranking

28 28 HUD intends to announce conditional funding for Tier 1 renewal projects within 45 days of the application deadline of the CoC Program Competition. HUD will announce any additional Conditional Awards (new projects and Tier 2 renewals) after scoring is complete, depending on availability of funding. Ranking
