FY2016 CoC NOFA Project Rankings

Posted on CoC HTH website and emailed via CoC HTH list serve on 8/24/16 to the full CoC membership, CoC Board, Ranking Team, and all current CoC Program applicants/recipients/ subrecipients.

On Tuesday, August 9, the Ranking Team of the VT Coalition to End Homelessness met to review all CoC project applications and determine the order of priority for submission to HUD as part of the FY2016 CoC NOFA. The VCEH Ranking Team determined project priority by using the pre-approved VCEH Project Ranking Policy & Ranking Tool, which included performance data (APR, VT HMIS-SPM outcomes), LOCCS draws, HUD and CoC priorities and other measures. Each project applicant was provided their priority number along with the reasons for the determination, and offered the opportunity to appeal their score/priority number. All project applicants have chosen not to appeal, therefore the FINAL Project Listing is as follows:
