Funding Opportunity to Provide

Services to the Homeless

Baltimore County invites organizations to express their interest in applying for a bonus project(s) as part of the annual Continuum of Care funding program (CoC) that is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The County expects that approximately $245,995 in federal funds will be available for the bonus project(s). The County is flexible with regard to the number of projects that could be supported through the bonus funding. In accordance with federal guidelines, the CoC program provides funding to organizations that provide services and assistance to families and individuals who are homeless or face the threat of homelessness.              

The Baltimore County Department of Planning serves as the lead agency coordinating the allocation of HUD Continuum of Care funds awarded to meet Baltimore County's need for services to the homeless. Organizations interested in applying for a CoC bonus project to help meet Baltimore County needs should contact County Homeless Services Administrator Keenan Jones at This email address is being protected from spambots.
