FY 2013 and FY 2014 CoC Program Competition Application: Deadline Reminder


As of today, January 24, 2014, there are 11 days remaining until the end of the FY 2013 CoC Program Competition.

Applications must be submitted in e-snaps by 7:59:59 PM ET February 3, 2014.


Applications must be completed and submitted in e-snaps no later than February 3, 2014, 7:59:59 p.m., Eastern Time. Please allow ample time to complete your CoC Consolidated Application and DO NOT wait until the last minute to submit. HUD strongly recommends that CoCs submit their applications at least 24-48 hours before the deadline. See Section VI of the FY 2013 - FY 2014 CoC Program Competition NOFA for application submission and timely receipt requirements for the FY 2013 CoC Program Competition process.

Clarification on 3A-3.2 of the CoC Application
HUD has developed FAQ #1469 related to question 3A-3.2 of the CoC Application: 

Question:

The updated instructions for completing question 3A-3.2 stated that CoCs should rely on the programming specifications for the APR from Q24b3 and the universe of persons should be program participants (i.e., adults and children) who are leavers. Q24b3 is limited to reporting on adults and includes both Leavers and Stayers. What data should I use to answer this question?

Answer:

Similar to the other 3A-3 questions, CoCs should answer questions 3A-3.2a and 3A-3.2b based on adult leavers and stayers. CoCs should continue to rely on the APR programming specifications for Q24b3 to answer the questions.

Guidance on the Consolidated Appropriations Act
HUD is also providing the following interim guidance in response to questions we have received on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014:

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014, passed by Congress on January 15, 2014, included language permitting nonprofit organizations to administer rental assistance for permanent housing funded with FY 2012, FY 2013, and FY 2014 CoC Program funds. HUD is aware that some recipients renewing CoC Program grants for leasing will want to shift their leasing budget line item to rental assistance. However, because the Appropriations Act was just passed earlier this month, HUD has not had the opportunity to develop guidance on how to implement this change. Therefore we are requiring project applicants to apply as approved on the GIW as HUD develops guidance on how to make this change.   

Additionally, HUD will provide guidance to applicants applying for rental assistance funds (new or renewal) about how this language will impact the commitment letter from an entity eligible to administer the rental assistance currently required by Section II.B.5 of the FY 2013 – FY 2014 CoC Program NOFA. HUD will release this guidance for both of these scenarios via listserv as soon as it is available.

Questions?
Any questions related to the FY 2013 CoC Program Competition applications or the NOFA must be submitted to the e-snaps Ask A Question (AAQ) portal no later than Wednesday, January 29, 2014. Any clarifying questions related to the FY 2013 CoC Program Competition applications, policies, or the NOFA must also be submitted to the e-snaps Ask A Question (AAQ) portal no later than Wednesday, January 29, 2014. Any questions received after January 29, 2014 are not guaranteed a response prior to the application deadline. To submit a question to the e-snaps AAQ portal, select e-snaps from the My question is related to drop down list on Step 2 of the question submission process.

CoCs, Collaborative Applicants, and Project Applicants that require information and technical support regarding the FY 2013 CoC Program Competition may submit an electronic inquiry to OneCPD Ask A Question. Starting on Friday, January 31, 2014, the AAQ will only respond to emergency technical support questions up to the competition deadline of February 3, 2014, 2013 7:59:59 p.m., Eastern Time.

FY 2014 Income Limits for CPD Programs


HUD has released the FY 2014 Median Family Income estimates and FY 2014 Income Limits. The FY 2014 Income Limits are effective as of December 18, 2013. View income limits for the following programs:

FY 2014 HOME Program Rent and Income Limits will be issued together in the near future. Therefore, PJs must continue to use the 2013 HOME Rent Limits and 2013 Income Limits until HUD issues the 2014 HOME Rent and Income Limits.

Note that the CPD Income Calculator does not reflect the FY 2014 income limits yet. HUD will send a mailing list message when the income limits are updated in the Income Calculator. In the meantime, you should use the relevant income limits listed above to complete income certifications.

Update: Changes to Income Calculator for FY 2014 Income Limits


HUD has updated the Income Calculator to incorporate FY 2014 HUD Program Income Limits for all programs except for HOME calculations, as the FY 2014 limits are not yet in effect for HOME. The income limits have been effective since December 18, 2013 for most HUD programs and they will be available for use on the Calculator beginning January 28, 2014.

How Do New Income Limits Affect the Income Calculator?
On January 28, all calculations (except HOME) currently in progress in a user's Dashboard in the CPD Income Eligibility Calculator, as well as all calculations completed going forward, will begin using the FY 2014 income limits for determining eligibility. Only calculations that are completed, with the summary PDF downloaded from the Calculator and saved to a user's hard drive (or printed to hard copy) prior to January 28 will reference the 2013 income limits data when determining a beneficiary's income eligibility.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR HOME PROGRAM CALCULATIONS ONLY: This calculator continues to apply the FY 2013 income limits for HOME Program calculations only, as the FY 2014 limits are not yet in effect for HOME. The FY 2014 income limits will not become effective for the HOME Program until 30 days after HUD posts the income limits, along with the 2014 HOME rent limits, on the HOME Program website at www.hud.gov/homeprogram/.

What Actions Do I Need to Take?
Users who have completed calculations in the Calculator using 2013 income limits but have not downloaded the summary PDF and saved the document to their hard drive (or printed to hard copy) should do so before January 28.

While your data and calculations are accessible within the CPD Income Eligibility Calculator for 13 months, this feature is designed to allow you to more easily update a beneficiary’s income determination in the future – rather than to maintain an online record of all income calculations completed in the past.

How Do I Download the Summary PDF of My Calculations?

  1. Log into the CPD Income Eligibility Calculator. Once logged in, you will be on the Dashboard page.
  2. On the Dashboard, select the Beneficiary ID of the calculation you'd like to download.
  3. If the calculation is complete, select "Summary" under "Annual Income" on the left-hand toolbar then skip to Step 5.
  4. If the calculation is not complete, the "Summary" tab will not be able to be clicked. Complete the calculation.
  5. On the Annual Income Summary page, select the "Download PDF File" button.
  6. Save this PDF to your computer's hard drive by right-clicking the document and selecting "Save As..."
