Over $44 Million Awarded to Renewal Projects in New Jersey
On Saturday, January 26, 2019 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced funding awards for FY2018 CoC renewal projects. Almost $2 billion in funding will be made available to more than 5,800 projects providing housing and services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness. This funding provides over $44 million to support over 200 projects in New Jersey.
On September 18, 2018 Continuums of Care across the country submitted applications for funding through the competitive Continuum of Care grant application process. CoC funding provides support to programs serving those experiencing homelessness with a goal of helping communities quickly rehouse individuals and families while working to minimize the trauma caused by homelessness.
For the FY2018 Competitive CoC grants, HUD is announcing funding in two parts. Renewal funding announcements were made on January 26, 2019. Funding for new projects, including those seeking funding through the Domestic Violence Bonus funding, will be announced at a later date.
