80% of a new project’s score comes directly from answers provided in the HUD eSNAPS project application and 20% from MT CoC supplemental application questions.  

2021 NOFO Process

A Scorecard Committee consisting of five voting members are assisted by a national technical assistance consultant to review past scorecards and the current NOFO to develop the scoring criteria and point valuations for the 2021 Competition. Separate scoring are developed for new and renewal project applications as well as for Domestic Violence (DV) and non DV projects.  The draft scorecards are then presented to the MT CoC Coalition Board of Directors for discussion, change and final adoption.
