CoC Program Funding

Each Fiscal Year (FY), HUD opens a CoC Program Competition. The process begins with the registration of CoCs by CoC-designated Collaborative Applicants, followed by the CoC’s review of Grant Inventory Worksheets (GIW) and the release of the CoC Program Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). As the Collaborative Applicant for the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC), All Chicago administers our city’s annual evaluation and application process for HUD’s CoC Funding Competition.

The Chicago CoC Annual NOFO Process is broken down into three parts. Use the buttons below to learn more and access resources, documents, and applications pertaining to each part of the process.

CoC Grantee Quarterly Technical Assistance (QTA) Meetings

New this year, the CoC Quarterly Technical Assistance (QTA) meetings were created to support CoC Grantee success in CoC grants management and performance. The CoC QTA meetings will be for each CoC-funded agency to have a designated meeting with the Collaborative Applicant team to discuss the needs to run CoC program(s) successfully. Our goal is to give CoC-funded agencies key performance indicators every quarter to improve their performance and meet HUD/CoC expectations, along with providing information on key topics and areas related to the NOFO grant cycle that will support grants management needs. This new initiative will require ALL CoC-funded grantees to commit to one QTA meeting per quarter.

Key logistics regarding the meetings:

  • 1-hour virtual meetings
  • The first 30 minutes will be based on your Scheduling form
  • The second 30 minutes will be based on the QTA Checklist form (this will be sent upon scheduling a meeting)
  • 4:2 ratio of agency participants per meeting (ex., four members from the agency to two All Chicago staff)
  • Takeaways and/or follow-ups will be provided after the meeting by the Collaborative Applicant team

On Wednesday, February 28, the Chicago CoC held a webinar to overview the CoC Grantee Quarterly Technical Assistance meetings. Use the buttons below to access the webinar recording and slides.
