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 homeless assistance projects in our state. In 2017 we applied for $8.3million in federal CoC homeless assistance funds and were awarded $7.9million. 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 with us each day to end homelessness.

2018 CoC Funding Information and Resources

HUD released the FY2018 CoC NOFA on June 20, 2018. The NOFA and supporting HUD documents can be found here: https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/e-snaps/fy-2018-coc-program-nofa-coc-program-competition/#nofa-and-notices

On July 11 the United State Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) hosted a webinar about the HUD NOFA: https://www.usich.gov/tools-for-action/webinar-fy-2018-continuum-of-care-competition-strategies-for-success  

We are currently accepting applications for new projects. Agencies interested in applying for new CoC funds, or planning to apply for renewal CoC funds, must have attended the CoC Grantee Meeting on July 6, 2018. If your agency did not have a representative at this meeting you are not eligible to apply for new or renewal CoC funds in 2018.

Strong project applications will meet HUD’s minimum administrative requirements, align with HUD’s priorities and the priorities of the Delaware Continuum of Care, demonstrate feasibility, indicate plans to implement best practices, and demonstrate a dedication to helping Delaware end homelessness. Please direct any questions to Aja White, CoC Program Manager, Housing Alliance Delaware.

Delaware is eligible to apply for close to $500,000 to create the following types of new homeless assistance projects:

  • Permanent Supportive Housing for individuals or families, with all beds dedicated for the chronically homeless, or meeting the DedicatedPLUS criteria set forth by HUD in the NOFA;
  • Rapid Re-Housing for individuals, families, or youth;
  • Joint Transitional Housing-Rapid Re-Housing (TH-RRH) projects;  
  • Coordinated Entry; and
  • Domestic Violence Projects
