ATTENTION:  HUD No Longer Using HUD Exchange for HUD-Issued Program/Competition Information


Effective immediately, HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) will use two different listservs on HUD’s website to communicate information regarding information developed by HUD/SNAPS concerning:


  • Continuum of Care (CoC) Program;

  • Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) Programs;

  • Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP);

  • Other Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) developed by SNAPS; and

  • Any other information related to SNAPS programs and the work to end homelessness.


Information and guidance produced by HUD technical assistance providers regarding SNAPS programs remains on the HUD Exchange and new information will continue to appear.  However, please be advised that documents and communication written by SNAPS will no longer be distributed through the HUD Exchange listserv.  Please communicate this information to your homeless organizations, local government contacts, interested stakeholders, etc.


As soon as you can, please sign up for the listservs to avoid missing important information regarding the FY 2021 CoC Program Competition, including GIW release, and other information related to SNAPS programs.
