TJACH is soliciting proposals from interested organizations to provide housing and/or supportive services for households experiencing homelessness. If interested in applying, please read HUD’s CoC Program NOFA in its entirety, available here. To review TJACH’s FY2018 CoC Consolidated Application, please download a copy here or see below.

Background –

HUD has provided funds through this competitive process to support a variety of approaches to homelessness but has consistently preferred (both in policy statements and in funding decisions) that this funding be used for permanent supportive housing projects that adopt a housing first approach & philosophy. This CoC has used this funding source to support permanent supportive housing projects at Region Ten. HUD has been particularly focused on serving the needs of the chronically homeless through these permanent supportive housing processes.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has organized local areas of service providers into entities called Continuums of Care (CoC). CoCs are designed to increase local collaboration and communication in an effort to improve homelessness services. TJACH serves as the Continuum of Care for the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle, Louisa, Fluvanna, Greene and Nelson Counties. The Service Provider Council coordinates the competitive ranking of eligible projects based on criteria reflecting unmet community needs and submits the regional application of funding. HUD provides funding for Shelter + Care, Supportive Housing Programs and Single-Room Occupancy projects through the Continuum of Care competition.
