On July 3, 2019, HUD released the FY19 Notice of Funding Availability making approximately $2.3 billion in funding available to communities through the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program, including $50 million available in Domestic Violence Bonus Projects. In response to this opportunity the Lake County Coalition for the Homeless (LCCH) is soliciting Letters of Intent for New Projects that align with the strategic needs as outlined in the FY19 Allocation Plan.

 LCCH is working within guidelines created by the FY2019 Allocation Plan that was approved by the LCCH Board of Directors on July 2, 2019. The full allocation plan and funding policies are available on the Funding Applications page of the LCCH Website. All HUD CoC Regulations  and requirements outlined in the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) will apply to all funded projects.
