FY 2023 Intent to Renew


There are two required steps in the Chicago CoC’s locally developed review process for renewal projects: 1) Intent to Renew (ITR), and 2) Local Evaluation Instrument (LEI). The ITR step is designed to minimize risk to the Chicago CoC by reviewing compliance with HUD requirements and verifying whether local priorities and thresholds are being met. All HUD CoC-Funded Projects seeking to renew grants in the 2023 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) are required to submit an ITR. Contact with any questions.   

The 2023 LEI Report is now available. View the report using the link below.

CoC Special Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO)

On June 22, 2022 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to address unsheltered and rural homelessness. The Chicago Continuum oCare (CoC) is eligible to compete for up to $60 million ($20 million per year for 3 years) to reduce the number of people who are experiencing unsheltered homelessness. This new funding is an incredible opportunity to make meaningful progress in providing housing and support for people who are living outside.

Read a summary of the Special NOFO in the CoC Board Briefing document. 


Housing Inventory Count & Point-In-Time Count


The annual Chicago Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a count mandated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide a snapshot of an inventor of housing conducted during the last ten days in January. The report tallies the number of beds and units available on the night designated for the count by program type, and include beds dedicated to serve persons who are homeless as well as persons in Permanent Supportive Housing. The Count is conducted in conjunction with the annual Point-in-Time (PIT) count.

The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is an annual assessment of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness at one moment in time. Each year, data compiled during the PIT count are analyzed and help to inform areas of need and the allocation of resources for housing and services. Over 230 volunteers, including City employees and homeless shelter providers, canvas the city in a span of a few hours over the evening. 

Results from both the HIC and PIT are submitted to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These reports can be viewed below.
