What’s New in the 2023 CoC Competition

There is significant information in at the following HUD link, including some changes from prior CoC competitions https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/CPD/documents/FY-2023-CoC-NOFO-Publication.pdf

Changes Include:
• Tier 1 of the ranking process priority list is 93% of the community’s Annual Renewal Demand – this is a decrease from last year, which means that the amount of funding in Tier 2 has increased. Tier 2 funding is higher risk of not being funded in the overall national competition.
• The amount of CoC bonus funds has increased from 5% of the annual renewal demand to 7% of final pro rata need. Total potential CoC bonus funds that the City of St. Louis CoC may apply for this year will be approximately $1,286,663.
• There is a DV bonus again this year of approximately $1,838,090. Multiple DV Bonus RRH and/or TH-RRH Projects may be submitted, or expansions of previous projects funded under a DV Bonus.
• In compliance with the reauthorization of the VAWA Act in 2022, there are opportunities for both renewal and new projects to budget for activities related to the implementation of the CoC’s Emergency Transfer Plan.

Additionally, HUD is continuing to offer some opportunities that began in prior competitions. These opportunities include, but are not limited to:
• Expansion Projects – new project applications that add to existing CoC projects by serving more people, providing new or additional supportive services or both.
• Consolidation of 2-10 grants into one project to streamline grant administration.
• Transition grants that allow an existing CoC grant to change components (i.e., shift from TH to RRH) during the next program year. These are new project applications.
• Opportunities to submit new project applications for new PSH, RRH, TH-RRH, HMIS and/or Coordinated Entry-SSO grants.
• DV Bonus applications for RRH or joint TH/RRH or Coordinated Entry for DV only.

City of St. Louis Subrecipient Renewal Applicants wishing to Expand, Consolidate, or Transition their project must consult directly with the City of St. Louis Homeless Services Division hsd-proposals@stlouis-mo.gov to facilitate those application actions. Decisions to amend the current project must be jointly decided no later than August 21 to address all the CoC local competition deadlines.
