The Montgomery County Office of Housing and Community Development is responsible for facilitating Your Way Home Montgomery County’s PA-504 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Funding Process Competition issued by the federal department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), including the review, scoring and ranking of new and renewing projects that provide housing and services for residents experiencing or at imminent risk of homelessness using these federal dollars. For FY2016, new HUD application scoring priorities focus on system performance and alignment with current HUD policy, which include:
• Having a systemic response to homelessness. This includes using performance measures and a coordinated entry system.
• Reallocating Transitional Housing projects to Rapid Re-Housing and Permanent Supportive Housing.
• Using a Housing First approach.
• Focusing more on program cost effectiveness.
The Your Way Home Housing Crisis Response System and public-private partnership fully embrace these principles. The following documents are relevant to this year’s application process. Please check back regularly for updates.
