The Durham Continuum of Care (CoC) is applying to the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) for a total of $1,537,538 in the 2018 HUD Continuum of Care Homeless Grants Competition. The Collaborative Application provides information to HUD on a variety of topics, including the organization, collaboration, HMIS implementation, and Point-in-Time Count of the CoC and the CoC’s performance on HUD’s system performance measures. The Durham Collaborative Application is available in its entirety.  HUD’s scoring of the Collaborative Application, in comparison to over 400 other CoCs across the nation, determines whether a CoC will receive all of the CoC funds it was eligible to apply for. This “Priority Listing” officially reports to HUD the Durham CoC’s recommended project rankings. The Priority List is presented in rank order here:
