The Fiscal Year 2010 SNAPS Technical Assistance program was designed to provide technical assistance for homeless programs in the Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs through the selection of technical assistance (TA) providers for this program.

The competition was announced in the SNAPS-TA NOFA published October 10, 2010 (FR-5415-N-31) and closed on November 22, 2010. The NOFA allowed for up to $16.3 million for technical assistance. Approximately $9.8 million was available under HUD McKinney-Vento Technical Assistance for homeless assistance programs, Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) data collection, reporting and research, including the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) TA activities and approximately $1.2 million under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Program (HPRP) TA activities. Collectively they are referred to as the SNAPS Technical Assistance Program (SNAPS-TA). Additional funds including approximately $6.5 million for McKinney-Vento homeless assistance TA became available as a result of HUD's recapture of unused funds as well as the use of carryover funds. Applications were rated and selected for funding on the basis of selection criteria contained in the notice. For the Fiscal Year 2010 competition, seven awards totaling $17,482,000 were awarded to seven distinct technical assistance providers nationwide.

In accordance with Section 102(a)(4)(C) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Reform Act of 1989 (103 Stat. 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3545), the Department is publishing the awardees and the amounts of the awards in Appendix A to this document.
