The City of Lansing is the 'Collaborative Applicant' for the HUD Continuum of Care Program and submits applications annually for housing and homeless assistance funding on behalf of the Capital Region Housing Collaborative (CRHC). The HUD Continuum of Care Program is a competitive national grant process.
The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.
The Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the 2019-20 grant cycle is available.
