HUD Special NOFO Award Announcement

Review the Approved Special NOFO Application

On June 22, 2022, HUD announced the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Supplemental Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness, which makes $322 million in competitive funding available to communities to address unsheltered and rural homelessness.
