2017 Evaluation Tool Approved - Posted March 1, 2017
The NYC CCoC Evaluation committee followed a community engagement process that requested and incorporated feedback from the CoC Steering Committee and community. Beginning in January 2017, the Evaluation Committee met to review the 2016 Evaluation criteria, determine what new performance measures were required, and address feedback from the previous year on the scoring approach.

A draft tool was presented to the Steering Committee for an initial review on January 18th at the monthly CoC Community Meeting. The membership requested the committee hold an additional meeting to discuss feedback on the tool which was held on February 6th. The additional feedback was incorporated, and the updated tool was presented to the Steering Committee for final review and discussion on February 17th.

The tool was discussed and approved by voice vote. On February 28th, the tool and instructions were distributed to the Continuum.

NYC CCoC Evaluation Criteria for 2017 NOFA
Each year, HUD releases a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) detailing the application requirements for Continuum of Care (CoC) program funding. One requirement of the NOFA is that each application is reviewed and ranked in order of local priority by a group of community stakeholders. In anticipation of the FY2017 NOFA, the NYC CCoC issues evaluation criteria to be used as part of the 2017 NOFA ranking process. This document describes changes to the evaluation process for the 2017 Evaluation.
