Funding Year 2017 CoC Program Competition Debriefing


During the FY17 CoC Program Competition, the LA BOSCOC scored 161 out of 200 total points.

The median score for all CoCs was 147.5. 

The weighted average score for all CoCs was 159.75. (This is the average CoC score weighted by Annual Renewal Demand [ARD]. CoCs that scored higher than the weighted average were more likely to gain funding relative to their ARD, also known as the total dollar amount of their renewal projects; CoCs that scored lower were more likely to lose funding relative to their ARD.)

The debriefing highlighted fourteen "high priority" CoC Application questions. The LA BOSCOC scored perfectly or near-perfectly (within 1 point of maximum) on eleven out of fourteen questions. Of the remaining three questions, two were related to rapid re-housing projects, which were not funded in the LA BOSCOC through either the CoC Program or ESG until FY17.

FY17 is the first year in which the LA BOSCOC's score is higher than the weighted average score.

Performance over time

The LA BOSCOC was founded in Funding Year 2015 (FY15). Since FY15, the average and median scores across all CoCs have remained steady, while the LA BOSCOC's score has risen significantly.
