  • Anticipated Written Questions Deadline Date: August 6, 2019
  • Anticipated Submission Deadline Date: August 16, 2019

The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) recently announced its intention to release the FY19 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) in May 2019. Each year, LAHSA, as the HUD-designated collaborative applicant for the Los Angeles CoC (LA CoC), coordinates the local RFP for new and/or expanded CoC projects (“CoC Program New Projects RFP”). Projects recommended for funding under the RFP by the LAHSA Commission become part of the LA CoC’s Consolidated Application to HUD.

The CoC Program New Projects RFP consists of funding from CoC bonus funding (“standard bonus”) made available by HUD, as well as funds reallocated from projects by the LA CoC. Last year, for the first time, the RFP also included a domestic violence bonus (“DV bonus”) funds specially appropriated by the U.S. Congress. For the FY19 competition, Congress has again appropriated $50 million for a DV bonus. Eligibility for the DV bonus will not be known until HUD releases the FY19 NOFA.
