Department of Housing and Urban Development: Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs

by:

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development, otherwise referred to as HUD, is a Cabinet department in the Executive branch of the US federal government.

HUD mainly focuses on creating strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.

Since its establishment in the 1960s, HUD has consistently been working towards strengthening the country's housing market to boost the economy and at the same time protect the consumers.

In addition to all their others programs, HUD has recently announced the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs, which can be broken down into three subprograms, namely; the Supportive Housing Program(SHP), the Shelter Plus Care Program(S+C), and lastly the the Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation for Single Room Occupancy (SRO) Program.

The primary purpose of the CoC Homeless Assistance programs is to reduce the incidence of homelessness in established CoC communities, thereby the need to assist homeless individuals and families during the process of quickly transitioning to self-sufficiency and permanent housing.

For the year 2011, HUD has an allocated available budget of $1.63 billion for the CoC Homeless Assistance Programs.

All interested applicants are required to electronically submit their applications via e-snaps, which is accessible online through the HUD website. Deadline for applications will be on October 28, 2011.

A CoC community will be deemed eligible to apply for this grant if its existing registration is was approved by the HUD during the fiscal year 2011. HUD announcement has emphasized that CoCs without approved registrations will not be permitted to submit applications.   (continued...)
