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.


2016 CoC Dashboard Reports Now Posted

HUD has posted the 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Dashboard Reports on the HUD Exchange.

These reports show maps of claimed geography and geographic coverage changes from previous program years as well as graphic summaries of each CoC’s total award by component types, renewal types, and awarded amounts. The reports also contain graphics depicting data from the Point-in-Time (PIT) count and Housing Inventory Count (HIC), which provide a quick overview of a CoC’s performance in serving homeless individuals with their CoC awards.

The FY 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition funding has been announced.  See more about the announcement at the NEWS tab  and more about our local application process at the HUD NOFA tab.
