March 29, 2023 Update: The Jasper and Newton County COC was funded! Locally we were awarded $625,062.00 in rental assistance funds to help house people experiencing homelessness. See press release below. 
Today, HUD announced $2.76 billion in FY 2022 Continuum of Care (CoC) Competition Awards in approximately 7,000 local homeless housing and service programs across the U.S. and its territories. These CoC grants provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, and local governments to quickly rehouse individuals and families experiencing homelessness and provide support while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness.
