This year’s CoC NOFA also includes a new opportunity for communities – a project type combining Transitional Housing and Rapid Re-Housing. Register for a webinar on Thursday, June 15 at 2 pm ET that will discuss how to evaluate if this is needed in your community and what populations might benefit from it.
