[ARCHIVED] Continuum of Care Application for 2018 Bonus Project for Serving Survivors of Domestic Violence


The Washtenaw County Continuum of Care (CoC) will accept applications for a new Permanent Housing Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) project serving survivors of domestic violence (DV), dating violence, sexual assault or stalking totaling $149,674 for the 2018 CoC Funding Competition. The deadline for applications is Friday, 7/27, at noon. Note: this is a different application process than the CoC bonus application that was due 7/13 as this one is a DV-specific bonus project.

The 2018 CoC Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) allows CoCs to apply for one RRH project that must follow a housing first approach and is dedicated to serving survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking that are defined as homeless at 24 CFR 578.3.

Applicants do not have to be DV providers, but it is strongly advised that non-DV providers partner with DV programs to ensure critical program elements are included, such as ongoing safety planning, survivor confidentiality, trauma-informed services and survivor choice.


The CoC Funding Review Team (FRT) will review applications and ensure threshold and quality criteria is met as outlined in the attached application and attachments. The FRT will also be looking for applications that show:

  • Applicants can quantify the need for the project and how the project will fill that gap
  • Previous performance of applicant in serving survivors of domestic violence (DV), dating violence, sexual assault or stalking, as well as their ability to house survivors and meet safety outcomes

Applicants should not request an amount that exceeds $149,674 for a 1-year grant term. CoC staff may work with applicants to either partner with another provider and/or reconsider application submission based upon competitiveness of project according to HUD and local priorities. However, no interested applicant will be rejected prior to formal FRT review.
