Match Notes
This Program requires an applicant to leverage resources through cost sharing or matching as described in the regulation at 24 CFR 578.73, which designates that "recipient or subrecipient must match all grant funds, except for leasing funds, with no less than 25 percent of funds or in-kind contributions from other sources."

Competition Notes
HUD expects to make approximately 11 awards from the funds available under this NOFA. At least five communities of the intended 11 communities to be awarded will be rural. A Collaborative Applicant can apply on behalf of more than one community - however, HUD will not select more than one community within the entire CoC’s geographic area. Additionally, HUD will not consider applications from geographic areas within CoCs that HUD selected to participate in the FY 2016 YHDP competition.

Each selected community will be eligible to apply to receive a minimum of $1 million. There is no limit to the number of projects for which a community can apply. For example, a selected community could apply for $1 million for one project or $100,000 each for 10 projects.

The remaining appropriated funds will be made available to the selected communities based on a formula that accounts for the number of youth in each community ages 10 to 24. Each selected community will be able to apply for and be selected by HUD to receive awards for projects for up to 30 percent of their potential funding immediately after the announcement of the selected communities and the remaining balance will be available after HUD has approved a community’s coordinated community plan (See “Developing a Coordinated Community Plan” in Section III.C.3.b.).

The maximum possible award is determined based on the communities that are selected according to the following formula:
Community Award = $1,000,000 + [(Community Population Age 10 to 24 * Community Poverty Rate Age 12 to 24) ÷ (Sum of (Community Population Age 10 to 24 x Community Poverty Rate Age 12 to 24) for all 11 Communities) x $32,000,000
