The account portal allows counselors to track their progress in the online training course. The same account portal will provide access to the practice exam and the certification exam registration when they become available.  At this time, users cannot register for the HUD housing counselor certification examination.

        Additionally, training materials, including both the interactive online modules and the downloadable Study Guide, have been modified and republished (Version 201701). Content changes in the recent release include

    The Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition has been posted to the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition: Funding Availability page on the HUD Exchange.

    Submission Deadline: Wednesday, September 14, 2016 at 7:59:59 PM EDT

    • The FY 2016 CoC Program Competition is administered under the CoC Program interim rule (24 CFR part 578) and covers the application and award process for the FY 2016 CoC Program funds.
    • The electronic application, e-snaps, is not yet available. HUD strongly encourages CoCs, Collaborative Applicants, project applicants, and stakeholders to use the time before e-snaps opens to:
    - Carefully and thoroughly read the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition NOFA to clearly understand what has changed from last year; and      
    - Begin to plan local competitions based on the information, new and changed, from the previous competition, provided in the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition NOFA.      
    • An announcement will be made on the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition: Funding Availability page on the HUD Exchange and via listserv message when the e-snaps is available. For your planning purposes, we anticipate this will occur sometime after July 6, 2016.
    • HUD will issue a Preliminary Annual Renewal Demand (ARD) Report that includes each CoC’s Preliminary Pro Rata Need (PPRN) and ARD amounts no earlier thanJuly 8, 2016, followed by a final ARD Report no earlier than August 5, 2016 that will include each CoC’s PPRN, ARD, CoC Planning, and Permanent Housing Bonus amounts available.

    What’s New and Special Considerations for the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition?

    The list below highlights some important information about what has changed, what is new, and special considerations that CoCs should make while planning for the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition..

    • Tier 1 is now 93 percent of the CoC’s ARD amount, up from the 85 percent in the FY 2015 CoC Program Competition, which means CoCs will have an opportunity to protect more of the higher priority projects.
    • The amount available for the FY 2016 Permanent Housing Bonus is 5 percent of the CoC’s Final Pro Rata Need (FPRN), which allows HUD to provide permanent housing bonus funding to more CoCs.
    • Tier 2 project-level scoring has been revised to include:
    - Up to 50 points based on CoC Application score;
    - Up to 35 points based on where the CoC ranks a project in Tier 2 in the local ranking process; 
    - Up to 5 points based on the type of project in Tier 2; and 
    - Up to 10 points based on each Tier 2 project’s commitment to a Housing First approach. It is important to note that any project that identifies through the project application as Housing First will be required to operate as such.   
    • After several years of preparing for and providing information on performance measures, this is the first Competition where CoCs will be rated for submitting system performance measures, which will be worth 10 points. You can find more information about the System Performance Measures on the HUD Exchange.
    • The local ranking process continues to be crucial to making the CoC program as effective as possible. CoCs should use objective, performance-based criteria to rate projects and should consider both the need to serve particular populations (for example, survivors of domestic violence, youth, and persons with substance use disorders) of people experiencing homelessness and the effectiveness of their projects in reducing homelessness.

    **All information related to the FY 2016 CoC Program Competition is communicated via the HUD Exchange Mailing List. Join the mailing list to receive important updates and reminders.  If you are aware or suspect that the Collaborative Applicant, CoC members, or interested stakeholders are not currently receiving these listserv messages, please forward the following link, https://www.hudexchange.info/mailinglist/, to them to register for the listserv messages as this is the only form of communication used by HUD to the public.
