        Since the September 2014 release of HUD's Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Continuum of Care Program Competition, USICH has created numerous resources to equip Continuums of Care for continued success in the program. In this video, USICH Senior Policy Director Richard S. Cho and Management and Policy Analyst Lindsay Knotts provide a quick overview of the NOFA and its emphasis on reallocating funding toward evidence-informed projects. The video also points to a new guide they wrote, which answer questions, such as: What is reallocation? When should a CoC reallocate CoC Program funds? What projects should be reallocated? What are the unique challenges of "one-to-one same provider" reallocations or conversions? What are examples of communities that used reallocations to create more effective systems to end homelessness? Where can you find more information and resources about the reallocation process? That guide is located at http://usich.gov/resources/uploads/asset_library/FINAL_Reallocation_Tool_09_30_14.pdf.

Family homelessness is down 15 percent; 53 percent fewer families are living unsheltered. Chronic homelessness is down 21 percent; 14 percent unsheltered. There's been a slight downturn in youth homelessness, but particularly noteworthy are the declines seen among Veterans. Veteran homelessness is down 33 percent, unsheltered down 43 percent.
