Coalition Funding Process

The York County Coalition on Homelessness (PA-512, York City/County CoC) funding process is directed through the Coalition, 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 Summer, with funding being awarded in the Winter. 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 Coalition. Projects that apply for this funding stream must be reviewed, scored, ranked and approved by a sub-committee of the Coalition.

The Coalition welcomes and encourages applications by organizations that have not previously received Continuum of Care funding from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). The Coalition provides assistance working through the application process and all the way to full implementation of your project. A rising tide lifts all boats, and we are here to support you as you learn this new funding stream. 

The FY 2023 Continuum of Care Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) opened on July 5, 2023. This NOFO is due September 28, 2023 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

Local Competition 30 Day Deadline: Projects must be received by the lead agency at least 30 days prior to the close of the application. This year that date is:August 29, 2023 .
