2017 Continuum of Care Funding Opportunity- Request for Letters of Intent


Washtenaw County Continuum of Care (CoC) has the opportunity to apply for $334,013 in permanent housing funds and is requesting interested applications to submit a Letter of Intent by Monday, 8/7/17 at noon.

The 2017 Continuum of Care (CoC) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) announced $334,013 in bonus funds available for new permanent housing projects, as well as an opportunity for current grantees to apply for expansions of current projects. New in the FY 2017 CoC Program Competition, HUD will allow project applicants to apply for a new expansion project under the reallocation process or permanent housing bonus in order to expand existing eligible renewal projects that will increase the number of units in the project, or allow the recipient to serve additional persons.

 The Washtenaw County CoC will require applicants to participate in a two-part application process.

  1. Interested parties are first asked to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) and attend a mandatory meeting to be considered as an applicant for bonus funds.
  2. Applicants still interested in submitting projects after the mandatory meeting will be required to submit a full application to be reviewed and scored by the Funding Review Team, a committee of the Washtenaw County CoC Board.

LOIs are due by Monday, August 7, 2017 by noon and applicants are required to attend a mandatory meeting in person or over the phone on Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 830-10am at the Office of Community & Economic Development (OCED) at 415 W. Michigan Ave. Ypsilanti, MI 48197. The meeting will bring applicants together with national consultants Housing Innovations to review NOFA guidelines and clarify any questions. Those who submit LOIs and indicate preference to participate by phone will be given the call-in information on August 8, 2017. Full application and deadlines will be shared after the mandatory meeting, including scoring criteria.
