On Tuesday, August 1, 2023, the City of New Bedford’s Continuum of Care (CoC), acting through the Office of Housing & Community Development, issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) that includes both instructions and new/renewal application forms for 2023 funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The RFP is available in fillable format here: COC RFP 2023 Application deadline is Monday, August 14, 2023 at 12noon as detailed in the RFP.
The linked RFP includes an application for renewal projects as well as new projects (those available through bonus and DV bonus funding) made available by HUD in this round. This funding arises from HUD’s issuance of its 2023 CoC NOFO which is available here: COC NOFO 2023
The CoC strongly encourages those from tribal organizations as well as those who work closely with historically marginalized communities to apply for this funding. This competition is open to ALL eligible applicants; one need not have previously applied to participate and submit an application.
