Out-Wayne HUD 2015 NOFA Final Ranking

Posted by OutWayne-COC on October 22, 2015

Final Rankings


Posted by OutWayne-COC on October 21, 2015

The HUD renewal applications must be completed in esnaps by the close of business on November 11, 2015.  This will give the collaborative applicant time to review before the CoC’s submission to HUD on or before November 19.


Please read every question carefully.  While the renewal application is similar to previous years’ aps, there are important differences (e.g. Part 3 – Project Information).

As always, please contact me with any questions or concerns.




Please review attached in preparation for the CoC FY 2015 HUD NOFA scoring and ranking meeting scheduled for Tuesday, October 13 at 11 am.

NOFA Scoring and Funding Announcement

NOFA Alert 2.0

Posted by OutWayne-COC on

On September 18, 2015, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development released the FY 2015 Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) details. I am respectfully requesting that you read the details so that you are well familiar with the entire process.  NOFA-related details can be found at:

All applicants must complete the applications in e-snaps (specifics contained in NOFA) well before the November 20, 2015, due date.

An initial discussion was held at the CoC meeting on October 6, 2015, and at that time, the CoC agreed to not entertain a new permanent housing project.  On Tuesday, October 13, 2015, at 11 am, the CoC will reconvene (2121 Biddle Suite 102, Wyandotte, MI) to determine which projects to recommend for funding in response to the FY 2015 NOFA.  Interested parties should plan to attend.  Those interested in applying for funding should submit their intention to request funding (if you have not already done so) to by the close of business on Monday, October 12, 2015.


Annual Renewal Demand (ARD): $3,449,330 = value of renewal projects

Preliminary Prorata Need (PPRN): $5,637,024 = HUD estimate of CoC need

Permanent Housing Bonus (PHB): $995,553 = maximum new project request

Tier 1: 85% of ARD=$2,931,930 *

Tier 2: 15% of ARD plus PHB=$1,512,953 *

* Estimate: HUD will release exact amounts any day

Please email me at should you have any questions or concerns.  Please read the NOFA before contacting me with specific NOFA-related questions.
