2023 CoC NOFO
HUD released the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the 2023 CoC Program Competition, FR-6700-N-25, on July 5, 2023, making available approximately $3.13 billion to serve people experiencing homelessness nationwide. The information in the NOFO sets forth the competition rules and processes for the 2023 competition. Before the final application is submitted to HUD, the Pasadena CoC is required to hold a local competition to determine which projects will be included in the consolidated application, along with their ranked priority. The results of the local competition dictate which projects the CoC will include in the final application for funding.
Renewal projects are required to submit a renewal application by 5:00 p.m. PST on August 9, 2023 and all new projects must submit applications no later than 5:00 p.m. PST on August 25, 2023 to be considered for inclusion in the CoC application. Applications submitted after the corresponding deadline will not be considered for funding.
All applicants will be notified if their project was either accepted for inclusion in the CoC application or rejected in writing no later than September 12, 2023. All projects that are recommended for funding will be required to work with City staff to ensure all information is accurate and submitted in HUD’s grant management system (eSnaps) before the competition deadline of September 28, 2023.
The CoC Application contains information on the CoC planning body, governance structure, overall performance, and strategic planning process. The CoC Consolidated Application is made up on the following three parts:
1. CoC Application
2. Project Applications
3. Priority Listing
