FY 2017 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Registration Process: 4 Calendar Days Before the Deadline

The registration deadline is 8:00 PM Eastern Time (ET) Monday, May 1, 2017 . Registration submission must be received in e-snaps on or before the registration deadline. Failure to submit a registration in e-snaps by the deadline will result in the Collaborative Applicant being unable to access the FY 2017 CoC Consolidated Application, which includes the project applications for reallocated projects, permanent housing bonus projects, renewal projects, CoC Planning projects, and Unified Funding Agency (UFA) costs. Consequently, the Collaborative Applicant will be unable to apply for funds. Therefore, it is imperative that all Collaborative Applicants meet this registration deadline. As of 8:00 AM EDT today, April 28, 2017: 78 CoCs have not completed the first step of registration, which is registering for the funding opportunity, that will allow the Collaborative Applicant to move to the second step of making the registration forms visible for data entry and completion.
