Each year, the King County Continuum of Care (CoC) submits an application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for McKinney Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Grant funds. As part of the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), HUD requires our local CoC to conduct a thoughtful process to determine a priority order for projects.

Any person or organization who is working to address homelessness can register as a member of the Continuum of Care.

The Seattle King County Continuum of Care Board (referred to as the Advisory Committee in the Interlocal Agreement) serves as our region’s CoC Board and carries out mandatory functions required by HUD regulations. The Advisory Committee plays an important role in ensuring that King County receives federal funding. Under HUD regulations, the full CoC membership has authority over the continuum’s work and over the CoC Advisory Committee.

2022 CoC Convenings

The King County Regional Homelessness Authority (KCRHA), will be competing for up to $14,102,723 (over three years) in new HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) funds that focus on  investing in programs that reduce unsheltered homelessness, improve service engagement, health outcomes, and housing stability by using coordinated Housing First and Public Health Principles to serve unsheltered individuals and families. These funds are being released for CoC competition through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the 2022 Special  Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Unsheltered Homelessness and Encampment Health and Housing Services. The amount available for this RFP will be determined by HUD’s final award amount to the Seattle-King County CoC. The KCRHA expects multiple local contract awards.

We cordially invite you to join one of our two community listening sessions for the upcoming release of the, Unsheltered Homelessness and Encampment Health & Housing Services Request for Proposal (RFP)

We welcome anyone with lived experience of homelessness, housing and homelessness service providers, public health workers, community members, and anyone else with an interest in learning more about this funding opportunity, while also providing input to help shape the RFP guidelines. 

The upcoming virtual engagements are on Tue. 8/16 from 9am-10am and Fri. 8/19 from 1pm-2pm. These meetings will be similar in content, so your participation is only needed once. Your attendance is not required to be eligible to apply for the RFP, but it’s welcomed.  

Please RSVP to : coc.questions@kcrha.org
