MDHI’s NOFA Committee has been updating the ranking process for HUD’s Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the 2017 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition. While the 2017 CoC NOFA process has not started yet, the committee has been working to make the process more objective, transparent, and based on outcomes data.

The NOFA Committee needs your input to help in the continuous improvement of the ranking tool and accompanied Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). Please review the ranking tool and MOU and send your input to Will Connelly, Executive Director of MDHI, at will@mdhi.org. The deadline is Friday, May 26th. Thank you!

Grant Inventory Worksheets

HUD has posted the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 Continuum of Care Program (CoC) Competition Grant Inventory Worksheets (GIW) to the HUD Exchange for review by CoCs, project recipients, and interested stakeholders. HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) changed the GIW process to make the process both easier and transparent. SNAPS completed a thorough review to ensure all known eligible projects are included on each CoC’s FY 2017 GIW.

The GIW calculates the Annual Renewal Amount (ARA) for each project, which is the total renewal amount a project may request under the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition, and the sum of all renewable budget line items (BLI) (e.g., rental assistance, leasing, supportive services). The sum of all individual project ARAs within the CoC is then used to calculate each CoC’s Estimated Annual Renewal Demand (ARD).
