DURHAM, N.C. – Sixteen Durham projects serving the needs of people without homes have received more than $1 million in grant funding through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s Continuum of Care (CoC) Program.

The City’s Community Development Department has been notified that HUD has awarded a total of $1,070,621 to five different local organizations for 16 different projects. The competitively awarded grants will help fund transitional and permanent housing for homeless persons and families, short-term rental subsidies, and Durham’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), which is a common database of the confidential records of Durham’s homeless people

HUD conducted an abbreviated grant application and funding process for the 2014 CoC Homeless Grants Competition. HUD relied on the score of Durham’s 2013 Collaborative Application to approve project applications for funding in the 2014 competition. This official document to HUD shows the priority ranking of Durham’s CoC 2014 renewal and new project applications.
