Continuum of Care Program Collaborative Applicant Registration (CoC)
Questions regarding specific program requirements should be directed to the local HUD Community Planning and Development Field Office.
Questions may also be submitted to the HUD Exchange help desk.
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program provides grants for local collaborative groups that assist individuals and families who are homeless by providing supportive care services as they move into transitional and permanent housing.
Projects must designate a collaborative applicant and successfully complete a collaborative registration process to be eligible to apply for funding. The registration process allows for:
- Confirmation of geographic service area
- HUD's preliminary appropriation of need to geographic areas
- Request for Unified Funding Agency designation
- Request for High Performing Community designation
- Confirmation of an intent to submit a proposal.
The 2018 funding opportunity has not yet opened. In 2017, CoC funding provided:
- Permanent housing and rapid re-housing assistance
- Transitional housing
- Supportive services to homeless populations
- Homeless management information systems
- Safe havens
- Homelessness prevention activities
Eligible project applicants include:
- Nonprofit organizations
- Local governments
- Instrumentalities of state and local governments

Individual CoC program funding amounts are based upon HUD priorities, locally determined priorities, and overall demand for funds. The total funding available for 2017 CoC programs was $1.9 billion.
