Register Today: FY 2016 CoC Competition Debrief - January & February 2017

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will be delivering regional debrief calls on February 6, 7, and 9, 2017 for the FY 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition. These calls will summarize the results of the FY 2016 awards, share information on the areas of the application where CoCs generally did or did not perform well, and provide suggestions for improvements for the FY 2017 application.

In addition, the debriefing calls will allow time for participant Q&A with HUD Headquarters' staff.
Registration is now open for the following trainings:
Regions 5, 7, 8, & 10
Monday, February 6, 2017
2:00 - 3:00 PM EST
Regions 3, 4, 6 & 9
Tuesday, February 7, 2017
2:00 - 3:00 PM EST
Regions 1 & 2
Thursday, February 9, 2017
10:30 - 11:30 AM EST
Note that these calls are not the forum for CoCs or projects to appeal HUD's funding decisions. CoCs or project applicants who believe there was a HUD error in the awards have an opportunity to appeal and must follow the process outlined in Section X of the FY 2016 NOFA.
If for some reason, you cannot attend the session designated for your region you can register for one of the other sessions. The same material will be presented in each webinar and will be posted on the HUD Exchange.
Who Should Attend?
The FY 2016 CoC Competition Debrief is relevant to CoC Leadership. Lines are limited for these calls. Please limit registration to 2 people per CoC; we encourage CoC staff to listen together on one line (and use one registration) if possible.

Using Community Services Block Grants to Fund Rapid Re-Housing
by Jen Saunders
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services manages the CSBG program and individual states and territories administer it. The program is broadly available — 99 percent of the nation’s counties receiving CSBG funding! The grants fund services that address the needs of low-income people and communities. The CSBG is an often-overlooked resource that can support RRH activities.

After several weeks of crisis mode in Congress around preserving Medicaid expansion, it’s time for a deep breath and a recap of what’s happened so far and what’s likely to happen next. The process has changed and slowed, the immediate worst-case scenario has been prevented, but many threats remain.
