On Wednesday, August 18, 2021 HUD published the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition on Grants.gov. The CoC Program Competition will close on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, at 8:00 pm EST. HUD will be hosting two CoC Program Competition Office Hours to give CoCs an opportunity to ask competition questions.
