Permanent Housing Development Process

2020 Continuum of Care Application

If you are planning to submit a new permanent supportive housing or rapid re-housing project for the HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) funding application in summer 2020, the Columbus and Franklin County CoC governing body will need to review and prioritize the project. We welcome proposals from any interested party, regardless of whether you currently receive CSB or CoC funding. 

If you submitted a new project in the 2019 CoC application, you do not need to resubmit. Just let us know that you also want to submit for the 2020 CoC application (pending the results of the 2019 CoC competition Tier 2 awards) and confirm whether the funding request is the same. If you submitted a Project Plan for the 2020 Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA) tax credit prioritization, you do not need to resubmit. Just let us know that you also need prioritization for the CoC application and confirm whether the funding request is the same.

Please submit Concept Papers (or confirm previously submitted information) to Heather Notter (hnotter@csb.org) by 5pm Tuesday April 30, 2020.
