We reviewed the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Continuum of Care Program (CoC) award review process based on an anonymous hotline complaint alleging problems with the CoC competitive award process. The objective of our review was to determine whether HUD performed its CoC competitive review and award process in accordance with NOFA program requirements, focusing on ranking and scoring CoC projects.
SNAPS generally performed its reviews of CoC applications and project applications in accordance with the guidance in its 2017 and 2018 CoC competition NOFAs. In addition, SNAPS generally documented the decision results for unsuccessful applicants in e-snaps. We attempted to determine whether the complaint allegations had merit but found that they either did not appear to have a material impact on the review process, were incorrect, or could not be substantiated.
The report contained no recommendations.
