On July 14, 2017, as part of the annual Continuum of Care Program Competition, HUD released the Notice of Funding Availability for FFY2017 funds. Over 400 HUD-designated Continuums of Care compete for approximately $2 billion as part of a community process. This Letter of Intent Form, which was emailed out on July 19, 2017 to the VCEH listserv, applies to the Vermont Balance of State Continuum of Care (VT BoS CoC) only, which includes all counties within the State of Vermont, except Chittenden which submits a separate CoC NOFA application to HUD.
