2 About Help Hope Home GENERAL INFORMATION Help Hope Home is Southern Nevada s coordinated regional approach to assist individuals and families with achieving stable and sustainable lives. Through a collaborative effort, HELP HOPE HOME is a regional partnership that coordinates efforts to prevent and end homelessness in Southern Nevada. Our collective effort brings to the table all aspects of our community including citizens, faith-based organizations, non-profit providers, businesses, civic groups, education, law enforcement, and government. Through our efforts, we are able to leverage valuable resources, share information, and manage funding opportunities. Funding Opportunity Background Each year the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) releases a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the HUD Continuum of Care Homeless Funds. HUD has not yet released their 2014 CoC NOFA; however, the Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition s Committee on Homelessness (SNRPC-CoH), Continuum of Care (CoC) Evaluation Working Group is releasing a Local HUD CoC Project Application as part of the Southern Nevada local process. Information from this local application will be used to determine inclusion in the 2014 Consolidated Application to HUD for the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance funds. Note: The Local Continuum of Care Project Application is mandatory for anyone who wishes to participate in this year s Southern Nevada Consolidated application.
