FY 2018 CoC Program Competition: e-snaps is Now Available

The FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Consolidated Application (CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing) and project applications are now available in e-snaps. Collaborative Applicants and project applicants can now access the applications to review, update, and enter information that is required for the application process through the FY 2018 CoC Program Competition NOFA.
Submission Deadline: Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 8:00 PM EDT

Project Applicants

  • Returning project applicants can choose to import the FY 2017 renewal project application responses; however, this must be requested during your registration of the Renewal Funding Opportunity in e-snaps and is only available if you submitted a renewal project application in the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition (last year). If you import last year’s responses, be sure to carefully review them to ensure they are still accurate and representative of the project.
     
  • If this is your organization’s first time renewing your project, you will not be able to import information from FY 2017 and must, therefore, complete the entire renewal project application.
     
  • All new project applications must complete the entire new project application.

Collaborative Applicants

  • CoC Application and CoC Priority Listing are separate submissions in e-snaps. Collaborative Applicants must submit both parts of the CoC Consolidated Application by the application deadline for HUD to consider the CoC Consolidated Application to be complete.
     
  • HUD released a new report in the HUD Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX) for each CoC called the “CoC Competition Report.” This report includes the majority of the data reported in HDX needed to complete the FY 2018 CoC Application, including Housing Inventory Count (HIC), Point-in-Time (PIT) count, and System Performance Measures data, in a single report for CoCs to conveniently attach. The instructions on how to access the CoC Competition Report are also posted to the HUD Exchange.

Detailed Instructions and Instructional Guides

We anticipate that the detailed instructions and navigational guides will begin appearing on the e-snaps Resources page on the HUD Exchange the week of July 2, 2018:
  • Project Applications
    • Renewal
    • New
    • UFA Costs
    • CoC Planning
  • CoC Application
  • CoC Priority Listing
We anticipate that all detailed instructions and instructional guides will be posted by July 10, 2018.

Communities across the nation are working to end homelessness – but they can't do it without federal dollars. That's why the Alliance is watching closely as the federal budget process unrolls for the 2019 fiscal year (FY). Congress has reached a point in the budget process when there's usually time to take a breath. This […]

Each night, nearly 200,000 Americans sleep outside or in a place not meant for human habitation, like an abandoned building, a park, or a car. Between 2015 and 2017, this population of people experiencing unsheltered homelessness jumped by almost 20,000. And while this represents only one-third of all people experiencing homelessness, it remains the most […]

As results from the 2018 Point-in Time Counts begin to emerge, we see a scattered portrait of homelessness in the United States. While many communities are making progress, homelessness continues to rise elsewhere. Meanwhile, the housing affordability crisis looms large, as wages continue to fall far beneath housing costs. According to the National Low Income […]
