The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released the CoC Supplemental to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness Special Notice of Funding Opportunity (Special NOFO) on June 22, 2022, with approximately $322 million available nationally ($267.5 million for the Unsheltered Homelessness Set Aside and $54.5 million available for the Rural Set Aside) to promote targeted efforts that will reduce unsheltered homelessness. The LA CoC, which serves all of LA County (except for Glendale, Pasadena, and Long Beach), is eligible for a maximum unsheltered homelessness set aside amount of $60 million; LA CoC is not eligible for the rural set aside. The grant term for projects under this Special NOFO will be 3 years.

This NOFO will exclusively fund all new projects, enhance data collection for identifying those most in need, and tailor solutions to the specific subpopulation of individuals experiencing unsheltered homelessness such as those living in encampments. If awarded, this Special NOFO would allow the LA CoC to build upon existing and growing community engagement efforts, in partnership with people with lived experience of homelessness, to engage diverse stakeholders in informing how the LA CoC will reduce unsheltered homelessness. As part of the application process for the Special NOFO, the LA CoC will engage in a strategic community planning process with these diverse stakeholders to develop a comprehensive plan aroundmaking more equitable housing and services investments in the CoC with the goal of reducing unsheltered homelessness.
