People and Agencies in Action

The purpose of the SICOCN is to bring together public and private community based organizations, government, representatives and consumers to identify ways to serve the homeless by identifying gaps and proposing action to fill those gaps.  This includes seeking and managing grant funding.

The FY 2019 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program process can be followed by checking out the HUD NOFA 2019 & 2018 tab (see above).

The FY 2018 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program awards have been announced by HUD.  Approximately $2.1 billion are available in Fiscal Year 2018 for the CoC Program. The CoC Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

The SICOCN 2018 awards can be viewed here.
