CT BOS CoC Seeks Applications for Domestic Violence Projects

10 July 2018
Connecticut Balance of State Continuum of Care

Each year CT BOS CoC competes with other CoCs across the country to secure federal funds to help end homelessness through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Continuum of Care (CoC) program. This year, HUD has made up to $50 million available nationally to fund Domestic Violence Bonus projects (DV Bonus). The CT BOS CoC is eligible to apply for approximately $1.3 million in DV Bonus Funds. 

The CT BOS CoC is seeking DV Bonus applications for projects dedicated to serve survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and human trafficking for inclusion in the CoC’s 2018 application for HUD CoC funds.  More information about the types of projects eligible to apply appears below.  The CT BOS CoC encourages applications from applicants that have never previously received CoC funds as well as from applicants that are currently receiving or have in the past received CoC funds.  The CT BOS CoC provides technical assistance to ensure that the process is accessible to all eligible applicants, including those who have not received CoC funds in the past.

The CT BOS CoC is currently seeking applications for the following DV Bonus project types:

  • New Rapid Rehousing (RRH)projects that will serve homeless individuals and/or families, including youth, who meet the criteria defined below.  
  • Projects funded through this RFP may serve only individuals and/or families, including unaccompanied youth, who are residing in emergency shelter or a location not meant for human habitation AND qualify under the domestic violence criteria in paragraph (4) of the HUD definition of homelessness, including persons fleeing or attempting to flee human trafficking. 

To be eligible for funding, projects must commit to using the Housing First model

Applications are due to no later than 7/23/18
