See NOFA for more details

Joint TH and PH-RRH component project – This project includes two existing program components – transitional housing and permanent housing – rapid re-housing – in a single project to serve individuals and families.

See NOFA for more details.

Expanding CoC program-funded projects – HUD introduced a new way to expand CoC program-funded projects which will allow an eligible renewal project to expand units, beds, persons or services (dedicated HMIS projects can expand HMIS activities) through the reallocation process or permanent housing bonus. A new project application is required and only available to the type of projects allowed under the reallocation process or permanent housing bonus. It is not applicable for transitional housing, supportive services only (non-coordinated entry) and Safe Haven projects as these types of do not fall under eligible new project application types.

Project applicants can also expand a project under the traditional method, e.g., expand an existing project funded through other sources with the request of CoC program funds to add persons, units or services.

See NOFA for more details

Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) – Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) is not new; however, there is a significant change to the persons who can be served by a RRH project. RRH projects may serve individuals and families, including unaccompanied youth, who meet the following criteria:

  1. Residing in a place not meant for human habitation;
  2. Residing in an emergency shelter;
  3. Persons meeting criteria of paragraph (4) of the definition of homeless, including persons fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence situations;
  4. Residing in a transitional housing project that was eliminated in the F 2017 CoC Program Competition;
  5. Residing in transitional housing funded by a Joint TH and PH-RRH component project; or
  6. Receiving services from a VA-funded homeless assistance program and met one of the above criteria at initial intake to the VA’s homeless assistance system.

The persons who are provided housing and services through RRH has been expanded. You will notice the NOFA no longer requires renewing RRH projects to serve only those participants who were in a RRH category when the project was initially funded. Therefore, if a renewing RRH project was originally funded to serve only families with children, that project, through the FY 2017 project application may it will also serve individuals if it chooses.

See NOFA for more details.
