Grants offer funding for projects addressing homelessness

Federal funding is available through the Northwest Minnesota Continuum of Care, but the pre-application is due Sept. 10.


The Northwest Minnesota Continuum of Care (NWCoC) is now accepting new and renewal applications for its annual competition for projects aimed at addressing homelessness in the region.

The NWCoC has applied for the fiscal year 2021 Continuum of Care program competition through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

The Northwest Minnesota Foundation serves as a collaborative applicant for the grant and administers the NWCoC through its larger homelessness program.

Funding available through HUD is expected to include approximately $594,000 to renew or replace Youth Homelessness Demonstration Projects, $699,000 to renew projects meeting performance standards, $65,000 for new projects serving eligible populations and $83,000 for a “domestic violence bonus” serving survivors of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking or trafficking.

Applicants may include nonprofit organizations, governmental entities and public housing agencies.
