Each year, the Alliance to End Homelessness in Suburban Cook County must submit a competitive application to the United States Department of Housing Urban Development (HUD) for homelessness assistance funding.
Federal agencies issue Notices of Funding Availability (NOFA) to announce available funding for various programs. The Continuum of Care NOFA offers homeless assistance grant funding to support transitional and permanent supportive housing for homeless people in suburban Cook County.
"The Alliance contracted with the Social IMPACT Research Center to facilitate a process throughout the latter half of 2013 to create an updated strategic plan to guide their work to end homelessness in the coming years. A Strategic Path Forward to Ending Homelessness is a culmination of this work."*
