The NPW will be responsible for developing processes, Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and/or Letters of Interest for funding opportunities identified by the Chicago Continuum of Care Board of Directors throughout 2017. In addition, the New Projects Workgroup will be responsible for receiving, reviewing, and scoring applications and make recommendations to the CoC Board of Directors for funding. The NPW will:

  • Develop the process and selection criteria, as well as recommend awards to organizations for the 2017 HUD Continuum of Care Program Competition Application-Notification of Funding Availability (NOFA) for reallocated and/or bonus projects, if applicable.
