HUD FY 2014 Continuum of Care Program Competition: Strategies for Continued Success

On Friday, Sept. 19, 2014, from 12 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. Eastern, USICH will host a webinar for communities on strategies for continued success in responding to The Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Funds in the FY 2013 - FY 2014 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition (FY 2014 CoC Program Funding Notice). 
Through this competition, HUD will award $1.83 billion in funds for FY 2014. The FY 2014 CoC Program Funding Notice carries forward and continues the policy priorities outlined in combined FY 2013-FY 2014 CoC Program Competition NOFA, which are focused on accelerating progress on Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness
This funding Notice includes a number of new important changes and considerations unique to the FY 2014 funding round.  No CoC application is required for this competition; CoCs will only need to include project applications and rankings. In addition, HUD is setting aside approximately $40 million for a funding bonus to create new dedicated permanent supportive housing to serve people experiencing chronic homelessness. Although all CoCs approved in the FY 2014 CoC Registration process may apply, priority will be given to those CoCs that have a high need in relation to chronic homelessness as described in the funding Notice.
Participate in our webinar to learn more about the results of the FY 2013 competition, the unique aspects of the FY 2014 CoC Program funding competition, the permanent supportive housing bonus to serve people experiencing chronic homelessness, and tips for reallocations and prioritization.

HUD Launches National Disaster Resilience Competition and Resources

Today HUD Secretary Julian Castro announced the National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC), which will competitively award nearly $1 billion of Disaster Recovery funds to eligible communities to help them rebuild in a manner that makes them more resilient to future disasters.
Between 2011 and 2013, more than two-thirds of all US Counties experienced major natural disasters. As a result, we are all realizing just how vulnerable we are – not only to the damage brought on by extreme events, but to the long process of economic rebuilding that comes with recovery. 
The NDRC will require thoughtful, evidence-based practice, considering the latest findings regarding disaster resilience, including the range of possible effects of climate change and other risks on the target geography during the useful life of any proposed project.
Sixty-seven state and local governments are eligible to apply for the general pool of NDRC funding, totaling about $817M. Some communities affected by Hurricane Sandy may apply for a pool of $181M set aside for that region. The list of eligible applicants is provided in the NDRC Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), available as described below.
In addition, HUD is partnering with Rockefeller Foundation to provide additional support on disaster and climate resilience issues. This partnership builds on the success of Rebuild by Design, in which philanthropy and HUD coordinated efforts to generate innovative, citizen-driven concepts for resilient disaster recovery. Rockefeller will provide targeted technical assistance to eligible applicants, and general information to the public to support widespread efforts to plan for a more resilient future.

Resources for the National Disaster Resilience Competition

The National Disaster Resilience Competition page on the HUD Exchange provides a link to the NOFA on Grants.gov and two introductory webinars. All future webinar recordings will be posted here.
The Community Resilience Resource page on the HUD Exchange provides resources and research on disaster and climate resilience.
