Carried over or recaptured funds from previous fiscal years, if available, may be added to this amount.
The distribution of funds will depend largely on locally determined priorities, overall demand, and renewal eligibility.
The renewal process is now a competitive one. Awards made under the Supportive Housing Program (SHP) and Shelter Plus Care (S+C) are eligible for renewal if they are currently operating and have a signed grant agreement with HUD that will expire between January 1 and December 31, 2013. These projects are renewable to continue ongoing leasing, operating, supportive services, rental assistance, HMIS, and project administration costs.
Applicants that were eligible under the SHP and S+C programs but are no longer eligible under the CoC Program, will continue to be eligible for renewal of leasing, operating, supportive service, rental assistance, HMIS, and project administration costs, so long as the project continues to serve the same population and the same number of persons or units in the same type of housing. No new Safe Haven projects will be funded.
The supportive housing bonus will be for housing the chronically homeless. CoCs may submit project applications to create one or more Permanent Housing Bonus projects, which are new permanent supportive housing projects that serve chronically homeless individuals and families, with priority on serving those with the longest histories of homelessness. Demonstrating progress in reducing chronic homelessness will continue to be a scored item on the CoC Application.
