Funding Process

The Continuum of Care funding process is directed through the CoC Committee, as well as the York County Planning Commission (YCPC). The funding process is dependent upon open and close dates for applications that are produced by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

Application Process

Typically, the application process occurs in the Fall, with funding being awarded the following Spring. Projects must meet the specifications of housing and project types set forth by HUD through the HEARTH Act, as well as local specialized priorities which are set by the CoC Committee. Projects that apply for this funding stream must be ranked and approved by a sub-committee of the CoC Committee.
