Below are links to available resources for the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition.  Information related to the local application process will be updated continually.

Every year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) makes available federal resources for homeless programming to communities around the US through its Continuum of Care (CoC) Program and its annual CoC Competition. Continuums access these funds by completing consolidated applications on behalf of the federally funded homeless programs in their CoC. 

The CoC Program is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, and State and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness; promote access to and effect utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

Each year, HUD has annually allowed the Central Sierra Continuum of Care (CSCoC) to apply for funds to address the needs of people experiencing homelessness in our region.  The amount awarded is not guaranteed.  These funds are restricted for permanent supportive housing and rapid re-housing projects and cannot be used for emergency shelters or similar projects.  All existing projects funded directly through the CSCoC must apply for renewal each year.  Amador Tuolumne Community Action Agency (ATCAA), in its role as the designated Collaborative Applicant of the CSCoC, is responsible for responding to the annual CoC Program Competition NOFO, including collecting and submitting the required CoC Application information for all projects the CoC has selected for funding, and applying for CoC planning funds on behalf of the CoC.

Approximately $2,656,000,000 is available in this FY 2021 CoC Program NOFO, including approximately $77,000,000, available for non-competitive Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program renewal and replacement expiring grants, and up to $102,000,000 available for Domestic Violence.  Project applications submitted to the CoC for inclusion on the FY 2021 CoC Priority Listing as part of the CoC Consolidated Application must be reviewed and either accepted and ranked, approved, or rejected by the CoC.
