are there any plans to support this? Currently no projects seem to support, what is a standard build of CentOS 7 on RPI3, which is identified as "armv7l-unknown-linux-gnueabihf"

Why wouldn’t you use Raspbian? Its got better support. In the astronomy field Asteroids, Einstein and Seti all have apps available for it. Unfortunately the Asteroids app isn’t optimised for it so is rather slow.

You can connect with any Linux/ARM to all projects that have 32-bit and/or 64-bit ARM applications -your board needs to support ARM64 in case of the latter.
There are no special applications for CentOS. If you have a RPI3 on CentOS, just install BOINC and look out for projects with Linux/ARM applications -such as Asteroids@home.
If you have chosen 64-bit CentOS for your RPI3, add this to your cc_config.xml (using a plain text editor)
<options>
   <alt_platform>arm-unknown-linux-gnueabihf</alt_platform>
</options>
