Continuum of Care (CoC)

The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program (24 CFR part 578) is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth. 

The Youth Homeless Demonstration Project (YHDP) is a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending homelessness for youth ages 24 and younger experiencing homelessness including accompanied and pregnant or parenting youth.

FY2023 Continuum of Care Grant Match Program

With authorization from the Alaska State Legislature, the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) has established a federal grant match assistance fund to provide qualified FFY 2023 Continuum of Care Program applicants with assistance to 1) meet HUD’s CoC grant match requirements and 2) help Alaskan Continuum of Care Program applicants to earn “Leveraging” points in the national competition. 

HUD requires Alaska’s two designated Continua of Care (Anchorage and Alaska Balance of State) to conduct a competitive project application scoring and ranking process within each continuum to determine eligibility for CoC funding. 

Eligible Applicants

  • FFY-22-GMC-1 grantees.  Renewal applicants may request funding at or below their FFY 2022 funding award. 

Eligible Activities

Only activities deemed eligible by the primary grantor, HUD (24 CFR part 578), will be funded by AHFC through this grant match program.

In order to receive Grant Match funding through AHFC, you must apply for federal funding through the Balance of State Continuum of Care or the Anchorage Continuum of Care.

AK-501 Balance of State 2021 CoC Project Ranking

FFY2021 CoC Grant Match. Grantees who received awards through the FFY18/SFY19 application process are eligible for equal funding amounts in FFY2021/SFY22 funding cycle, provided that the grantee receives equal or greater federal funding from the FFY2021 CoC competition. New applicants may request up to 25 percent of anticipated funding. If the funds requested exceed the funds available, renewal applications previously funded by AHFC will receive priority funding consideration over proposals that are not currently receiving grant match funds through AHFC.
