Funding Opportunity: The PA-502 Continuum of Care (CoC), operating locally as the Homeless Services Coalition of Delaware County (HSC), is soliciting Letters of Intent for renewal projects, including Expansion of renewal projects, for possible inclusion in the HUD FY24 Continuum of Care Grant Competition. As required by HUD, the PA-502 CoC Governing Board will review all renewal projects for possible reduction or elimination based on their previous performance and ability to meet current needs and gaps in homeless services. HUD should release the FY24 Grant Competition Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) in the next several weeks. To learn more about the CoC/HSC and the FY24 local grant competition, please visit https://delcohomelessservices.org.

Renewal Project Applicant Instructions: Renewal Project applicants must submit Letter of Intent Form(s) for all renewal projects on or before Friday, May 31, 2024, at 11:59 PM EST to be eligible for inclusion in the PA-502 CoC FY24 grant application submitted to HUD.

Housing First prioritizes rapid placement and stabilization in permanent housing and does not have service participation requirements or preconditions. CoC Program funded projects should help individuals and families move quickly into permanent housing, and CoCs should measure and help projects reduce the length of time people experience homelessness. Additionally, CoCs should engage landlords and property owners to identify housing units available for rapid rehousing and permanent supportive housing participants, remove barriers to entry, and adopt client-centered service methods. HUD encourages CoCs to assess how well Housing First approaches are being implemented in their communities.
