​​​The Imperial County Department of Social Services (ICDSS), acting on behalf of the Imperial Valley Continuum of Care (IVCCC), is requesting proposals from nonprofit and local government organizations providing assistance to homeless populations within the County of Imperial. The ICDSS is interested in receiving new housing projects that meet the requirements of the Domestic Violence (DV) Bonus Project, CoC Bonus Projects and Reallocation Projects as noted in the attached United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) CoC 2019 Notice of Funding Availability (NoFA).

HUD released a NOFA for FY 2019 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition. HUD is making available approximately $2.3 billion in Fiscal Year 2019 for the CoC Program. The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.  The FY 2019 CoC Program Competition opened on July 3, 2019, and applications are due to HUD on Monday, September 30, 2019 at 8:00 PM EDT.
