CT Balance of State Continuum of Care

 

The Connecticut Balance of State CoC is a coordinated, comprehensive and strategic organizational structure mandated by HUD to receive homeless assistance funding. Within the CoC, community service providers, public housing authorities, non-profit organizations, and local and state governments form a consortium to address local homelessness and housing issues.

Each year, the CT Balance of State Continuum of Care accepts applications for new supportive housing projects to be funded through the  HUD McKinney Vento Competition. The Steering Committee established requirements and priorities for new applications.

CSH provides technical assistance and support to the Balance of State CoC in Connecticut. And each year, we’re happy to share information with our local service providers on how to apply for HUD McKinney Continuum of Care funds.

CT BOS New Project Application 2017

CT BOS New Project Application 2017 – POSTED 6/5/17

CT Balance of State Continuum of Care (CT BOS) is seeking applications from providers to apply for permanent housing funds, including both permanent supportive housing and rapid re-housing. Projects may be funded through both permanent housing bonus and/or any available reallocation funds.  HUD has not yet announced the amount of funds that will be available.

The following types of new projects will be considered:

  • New permanent supportive housing (PSH) projects that will serve 100 percent chronically homeless individuals and families including youth/young adults experiencing chronic homelessness.
  • New rapid rehousing (RRH) projects that will serve homeless individuals and families, including youth, coming directly from the streets or emergency shelters, or meeting the criteria of paragraph (4) of the HUD definition of homeless. (See Appendix for Definition of Category 4 – fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or other dangerous situations).

New projects to be included in the CT BOS 2017 CoC Application to HUD will be selected by an independent scoring committee. Final decisions regarding awards will be made by HUD via the national competition.   Please note that this application is based on the best information that is currently available and CT BOS may need to revise the requirements described below and/or request additional information after the 2017 HUD CoC NOFA is released.   All applications will be reviewed to ensure they meet HUD’s Threshold Standards.  Applications that do not meet these standards will not be further reviewed.

All applications are due by June 23, 2017 and should be sent to: ctboscoc@gmail.com.

Lease and Sublease Agreement for Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Leasing Projects
•   This lease and sublease example is a specific agreement that is made between the recipient or subrecipient (the tenant) and the landowner or sublessor. The program participant must be the sublessee of the recipient or subrecipient. The recipient or subrecipient must pay rent directly to the landowner or sublessor based on actual costs. Note that rent paid on units cannot exceed fair market rent or rent reasonableness, whichever is less. The recipient or subrecipient is responsible for the 100 percent of the rent or sublease rent to the landowner or sublessor, even if the program participant does not pay the occupancy charge in a given month. The recipient or subrecipient pays rent on a vacant unit.
•   Recipients and subrecipients that do not charge rent from program participants should not use a lease and sublease agreement arrangement. Those recipients and subreciepients must have a lease agreement with the landlord/landowner and a separate occupancy agreement with the program participant.
•   Note that this Lease and Sublease Agreement is provided as an example of an agreement that would meet the CoC Program leasing requirements and is for CoC Program recipients and subrecipients that develop their own lease agreements for leasing projects. It is not intended to be used by recipients and subrecipients without revision. Recipients and subrecipients must consult with local legal counsel and use a form that complies with state and local law. The CoC Program requirements are found at 24 CFR 578. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development assumes no liability for the use or content of the Lease and Sublease Agreement.
