FY2022 Notice of Intent (NOI) to Solicit ďNewĒ and ďExpansionĒ Projects The Reading/Berks County CoC (PA-506) is issuing this Notice of Intent (NOI) to solicit new and expansion projects to be submitted for HUD CoC Program funds. The CoC anticipates that HUD will release the FY 2022 CoC Program Competition Notice of Funding Opportunity (CoC NOFO) in the upcoming weeks. Upon release of the FY 2022 CoC NOFO, the CoC will release a new project Request For Proposals (RFP) to solicit new project Preliminary Applications from eligible entities operating within PA-506 CoC if funds are available for new projects.
The CoC is releasing this NOI to provide advance notice regarding the anticipated allowed uses of HUDís FY 22 CoC Program funds and PA-506 CoCís funding priorities set by a survey of the CoC. PA-506 CoCís goal in providing this information is to give organizations time to consider how new CoC funding could support the local needs. The CoC encourages organizations to begin thinking about what types of projects they would like to apply for once the CoCís new project RFP is released.
Interested applicants DO NOT need to respond to this NOI. Once HUD releases the FY 2022 CoC NOFO, PA-506 CoC will release a Request for Proposals (RFP). To be included in the PA-506 CoCís funding application to HUD, organizations must reply to the forthcoming RFP by submitting a Preliminary Application, and their Preliminary Application must be selected by the PA-506 CoCís Ranking Committee. New CoC funding will be awarded by HUD based on the performance of PA-506 CoC in the 2022 Continuum of Care competition.
The CoC is specifically looking to identify interest in the following project types:- New Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) Projects- New Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Projects- New Transitional Housing/Rapid Re-Housing (TH-RRH) Joint Component Projects- Expansions of existing CoC grants, including Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), Rapid Rehousing (RRH), and Transitional Housing/Rapid Rehousing (TH-RRH) Joint Component
