2018 Southern Nevada Local HUD Continuum of Care Project Application

Update August 1, 2018:

HUD has announced a funding opportunity for communities to expand housing and services to survivors of domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. This population also includes survivors of trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC). The Southern Nevada Homelessness Continuum of Care (SNH CoC) is eligible to apply for approximately $1.1 million for Rapid Re-housing projects, Joint Transitional Housing – Rapid Re-housing projects, and Supportive Services Only Projects to expand Coordinated Entry implement policies, procedures, and practices that equip the CoC’s coordinated entry to better meet the needs and implement policies and procedures that are trauma-informed, client-centered or to better coordinate referrals between the CoC’s coordinated entry and victim service providers coordinated entry system.

To discuss this opportunity and develop a plan to support the SNH CoC application to maximize these funds, we invite you to a brainstorming session where we can gauge community interest and develop a framework for moving forward in the application process. This process needs to be completed by the end of August, so time is of the essence.

We hope that you will consider joining us to discuss this opportunity and provide suggestions as to how we can best position our community to prevent and end homelessness for survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking.

Each year the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the HUD Continuum of Care Homeless Funds.  HUD has released their 2018 CoC NOFA in June.  The Southern Nevada Homelessness Continuum of Care (CoC) Evaluation Working Group is releasing a CoC Local Application as part of the HUD local process. Information from this local application will be used to determine inclusion in the 2018 Consolidated Application to HUD for the CoC Homeless Assistance funds.

Note:  The Continuum of Care Local Application is mandatory for anyone who wishes to participate in this year’s Southern Nevada Consolidated Application.  For 2018, the Local HUD CoC Project Application is an electronic submission through Zoom Grants.  Agency information and Agency Application must be submitted and approved before access will be given to the Project Application Tab.  Access to the Project Application will be completed after attendance of the Mandatory Application Technical Assistance (TA) Training has been recorded.

The application along with companion documentation is available below.
