The first step is for current grantees and project sponsors to indicate an intent to submit a renewal application which will:

-The applicant affirms that it meets HUD and CoC threshold for renewal funding. See the link for complete list of Threshold Review Criteria.

Intent to Renew information must be submitted to proposals@unitygno.org no later than Friday, August 11.

2. Local CoC Competition Application

The deadline for renewal applications is Tuesday, August 29, 2023. Applicants are encouraged to meet the early submission deadline of Friday, August 25 by 5:00 PM to receive bonus scoring points.
