Pre-established communities, called Continuums of Care (CoC), will complete the Exhibit 1 of the Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance application which collects data about the CoC's strategic planning activities, performance, homeless populations, and data collection methods. This information will be scored using the rating factors listed in the NOFA to determine CoC rank and level of new and renewal funding. State and local governments, public housing authorities and nonprofit organizations will concurrently submit project proposals electronically. The information will be used for grantee selection and monitoring the administration of funds. Response to this request for information is required in order to receive the benefits to be derived.

Miscellaneous Actions
This is a revision of a previously approved collection. Information collected through the electronic e-snaps application system is used to review the responses to the Continuum of Care (CoC) application, CoC Priority Listing, and project application to review and assess eligibility and quality threshold to determine which projects will be awarded conditional funding to address housing and service needs for individuals and families experiencing homelessness. The total burden hours for both the application submission process and application review increased due to the increase in the number of CoCs from 390 to 400 and the addition of renewal YHDP and replacement YHDP project applications. Additionally, Congress has recently authorized Domestic Violence Bonus projects which increases the number of new projects and may authorize additional funding for other possible bonus projects or increase the amount of funds for the existing DV Bonus which is estimated in the calculations. While HUD continues to encourage smaller CoCs to merge with larger CoCs which will reduce the total number of CoCs, as demonstrated in the previous PRA, there has actually been an increase in the number of CoCs as some larger CoCs have actually split, creating smaller CoCs thus increasing the number.
