Continuum News – September 2015

Continuum of Care Meeting – Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 9:00 a.m.

Since the CoC/HUD Homeless Assistance Grant NOFA (federal application) has been published – the CoC activities are moving into hyper-drive!

TUESDAY – Introduction to new on-line application process

To improve the local application and administration process HSN is implementing an on-line web-based application process for this year’s HUD application.  Now that final federal application details are known, the vendor will be updating the website with a revised form for agencies that want to submit applications to HSN.

On Tuesday, instead of a regular CoC meeting, we will be providing the first of several training sessions on how the system will work and how agencies can begin the process once the system is operational. This will not be the only chance to learn about the new system, but all agencies intending to apply for funding are encouraged to attend.

The introduction to the new application tool will be the only agenda item on the CoC agenda. Other called meetings to review the applications will be announced this week.

You are encouraged to begin gathering at 8:30 – coffee and bagels provided – and the meeting will begin sharply at 9:00  at the regular CoC meeting location – Pathlight Kitchen  – 3200 W Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL 32808.

Other meetings this week –

The Veterans Case Conferencing will have their conference calls on Monday and Tuesday at 9:00. A limited face to face meeting will take place at 9:30 on Thursday the 24th – at HSN offices. These meetings are intended for agencies working directly with homeless veteran households.  If you would like more information about these meetings, please contact Nef Rodriguez at neftali.rodriguez {at} hsncfl(.)org.

The NOFA/Application Committee WILL meet on Thursday the 24th at 2:00. The agenda for that meeting will focus on project applications and the scorecard and how the published NOFA gives direction for changes to the proposed documents the committee had already drafted.
