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.

Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE) 2017
On Monday, February 6, the NYC Department of Homeless Services (DHS) will conduct its annual Homeless Outreach Population Estimate (HOPE), a HUD-mandated citywide community volunteer effort to count each homeless person living in public spaces across the five boroughs during the coldest time of the year.

We are calling on YOU, our fellow New Yorkers, to help us canvas parks, subways, and other public spaces to estimate the number of people who find themselves living on the street. We need thousands of volunteers to make the HOPE Count a success. Last year, a record of 3,800+ New Yorkers registered for the count; we are hoping to recruit as many or more this year.
