HUD CoC NOFO Program
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program [24 CFR part 578] is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, Indian Tribes or Tribally Designated Housing Entities [as defined in section 4 of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (25 U.S.C. 4103) (TDHEs)], and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families, and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

Youth Homeless Demonstration Program (YHDP)
The YHDP award will move forward the effort to identify and quickly link all homeless youth to tailored and scaled housing and services.
This two-year demonstration program ended on November 30, 2021, and HUD renewed funding to RTFH for one year in the amount of $3,990,942 to continue the work of ending youth homelessness. Affirming the community-wide commitment outlined in the San Diego County Coordinated Community Plan to End Youth Homelessness (CCP), RTFH renewed all previously awarded projects – awarding 18 subrecipient agreements to eight providers totaling $3,588,596. The grant term for these projects extends from December 1, 2021 through November 30, 2022. In addition, RTFH received $236,316 to support HMIS and Coordinated Entry and was allocated $166,030 for project administrative costs.

In July of 2018 the Regional Task Force on Homelessness Continuum of Care was awarded through national competition, the Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) grant by The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the amount of $7.94 million, to prevent and end youth homelessness in the San Diego region. As a threshold requirement, the CoC was required to create a Coordinated Community Plan (CCP) to End Youth Homelessness in the San Diego region, regardless of the funding source.
CCP development was an amalgam of input and best practices from six special focus groups, four community input sessions and more that 25 Operational Team meetings; inclusive of written feedback from the San Diego Youth Homelessness Consortium, subject matter experts, and the various youth and community stakeholders on what they believe is needed to end youth homelessness in the San Diego region.
Both the CCP and YHDP will move the Continuum of Care forward in creating appropriate system capacity, and full implementation of a youth coordinated entry system. The YHDP grant aims to support a wide range of housing programs including rapid rehousing, permanent housing, transitional housing, and host homes; while emphasizing prevention and diversion, and will measure youth outcomes and overall system performance for the Continuum of Care (CoC) to prevent and end youth homelessness by forming new partnerships, addressing system barriers, conducting needs assessments and testing promising strategies.
