2017 CoC Local Selection Process

Monmouth County Homeless System Collaborative


Attention Monmouth County

Community Agencies


The Monmouth County Homeless System Collaborative has begun the planning process for the 2017 Continuum of Care applications.  In preparation for the final submission to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Monmouth County Homeless System Collaborative is now accepting applications from all agencies interested in 2017 CoC funding.  All groups requesting funding through the Continuum of Care must complete the notice of intent form and submit by May 26, 2017.


Agencies interested in funding new programs and all those agencies requesting funding for renewal programs must submit an NOI by the May 26th deadline.   All potential applicants should keep in mind that this is a competitive grant process.


In keeping with the 2017 priorities established by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the 2017 Registration Notice, new projects may request funding for the following program types:


  1. Permanent Housing Projects that serve chronically homeless individuals (including unaccompanied youth), and families
  2. Rapid Re-housing projects for homeless individuals (including unaccompanied youth), and families
  3. Supportive Services Only (SSO) projects for centralized or coordinated assessment systems
  4. Joint Transitional Housing (TH) and Permanent Housing-Rapid Rehousing (PH-RRH) projects that will combine TH and PH-RRH into a single project to serve individuals and families experiencing homelessness


Interested Agencies can request an electronic copy of the application forms by emailing Taiisa Kelly at tkelly@monarchhousing.org or Kathy Weir at Kathleen.Weir@co.monmouth.nj.us.  Additionally, NOI forms are available below:
