CoC Funding

Housing Alliance DE is the CoC Lead Agency in Delaware. Each year we coordinate the successful submission of a funding application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on behalf of our state. In 2018 Delaware was awarded $8.25 million. This was the largest CoC award in Delaware's history, and would not have been possible without the hard work of our talented partners throughout the state, working each day to end homelessness in our communities.

2018 CoC Funding

Housing Alliance Delaware is pleased to announce that the Delaware Continuum of Care was awarded $8,249,505 to directly fund 29 CoC projects and 884 beds for Delaware’s homeless population.

The FY2019 Continuum of Care (CoC) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) was released by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on July 3, 2019. In this notice, HUD announced that they are making new Continuum of Care funds available to communities.

At this meeting the HUD CoC NOFA will be reviewed, project applications will be distributed, and applicants will have an opportunity to ask questions about CoC funding and the process for applying for funds. If your agency does not have a representative at this meeting you will not be eligible to apply for new or renewal CoC funds in 2019.

 

Delaware is eligible to apply for up to $700,000 to create the following types of new homeless assistance projects:

1.         Permanent Supportive Housing for individuals or families, with all beds dedicated for the chronically homeless, or meeting the DedicatedPLUS criteria set forth by HUD I the NOFA;

2.         Rapid Re-Housing for individuals, families, or youth;
