FY 2021 CoC Competition

The revised FY 2021 Grant Inventory Worksheet (GIW) for the FY 2021 PA-500 Philadelphia Continuum of Care (CoC) Program funding process have been posted.

The GIW calculates an Annual Renewal Amount (ARA) for each project, which is the sum of each project’s renewable budget line items (BLIs) (e.g., rental assistance, leasing, supportive services), and identifies the total renewal amount a project may request in the FY 2021 CoC Program funding process.

Adjustments to Funding

The conditional award amounts included for CoC renewal projects (including Shelter Plus Care) and awards expiring in calendar year 2021 might be different than for the previous grant. The following adjustments were made:

  1. Funds conditionally awarded for rental assistance were adjusted by applying the Fair Market Rent (FMR) in effect at the time of application submission (including decreases). View the FY 2021 Fair Market Rent Limits.
  2. Funds conditionally awarded for operating and leasing in permanent housing projects were increased based on the average increase in FMR amounts within a CoC’s geographic area, weighted for population density. Because operating and leasing costs do not decrease relative to rent amounts for specific units, adjustments were not made to these costs if the FMRs decreased in the geographic area.
  3. CoC Planning and Unified Funding Agency Cost conditional award amounts were adjusted to be 3 percent of each CoC’s Final Pro Rata Need or $1,250,000, whichever is less.

Longitudinal Systems Analysis (LSA)

A critical aspect of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, as amended, is a focus on viewing the local homeless response as a coordinated system of homeless assistance options as opposed to homeless assistance programs and funding sources that operate independently in a community.

The Longitudinal Systems Analysis (LSA) report, produced from a CoC’s Homelessness Management Information System (HMIS) and submitted annually to HUD via the HDX 2.0, provides HUD and Continuums of Care (CoCs) with critical information about how people experiencing homelessness use their system of care.

Philadelphia CoC PA-500: Stella P Data Resources (Coming Soon)

  • Stella Performance Module (Stella P): Available now, Stella P uses dynamic visuals of CoCs’ LSA data to illustrate how households move through the homeless system and highlight outcome disparities. Stella P does the analytical heavy lifting, so your CoC can focus on planning and improving your crisis response system.
