2022 Special Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to Address Unsheltered and Rural Homelessness 

The Biden Administration through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a first-of-its-kind package of resources to address unsheltered homelessness and homeless encampments. Through this Special NOFO, HUD will award funding to communities to implement coordinated approaches–grounded in Housing First and public health principles–to reduce the prevalence of unsheltered homelessness and improve services, health outcomes, and housing stability among highly vulnerable unsheltered individuals and families.  

The Sacramento Continuum of Care (CoC) is eligible for funding to address unsheltered homelessness (Sacramento is not eligible for the rural homelessness funding) up to $10.6 million through this Special NOFO process and the NOFO application is due to HUD on October 22, 2022.

The Sacramento Continuum of Care is eligible for up to $10 million through this Special NOFO process and the NOFO application is due in October 2022. Stay informed and find more details below!
