CSH Analysis of General Section of the HUD NOFA


CSH has prepared an analysis of the General Section of HUD’s 2008 NOFA. To read their full analysis click here. The following is a summary.

On March 19, 2008, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released the General Section of HUD’s FY 2008 NOFAs for Discretionary Programs (General Section). The General Section describes the general requirements for applications to all of the SuperNOFA programs, approximately 34 different HUD funding opportunities for 2008, including McKinney-Vento/Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs (Supportive Housing Program, Shelter Plus Care, and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation SRO Program), Section 811, and HOPWA. All potential applicants should review the General Section closely.

Key information contained in the General Section to the 2008 SuperNOFA includes:

The expected publication date of the Notice of Funding Availability for the Continuum of Care programs will be no earlier than July 1, 2008.

Electronic submission will be required of Continuum of Care applications. The electronic application is not yet available, but details of the registration process, application, application submission date, and timely receipt requirements for Continuum of Care applications will be articulated in two publications to be issued separate from the SuperNOFA via the Federal Register.

HUD plans to publish its annual SuperNOFA (not including the Continuum of Care NOFA) in spring 2008.
