California Continuums of Care
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) initiated Continuums of Care (CoCs) which span all 50 states and 6 United States territories. California is divided into 44 CoCs. Each CoC consists of a wide-range of representatives from public and private entities that include civic groups, educational institutions, faith-based organizations, health and mental health care providers, local government, and non-profit agencies.
CoCs are charged with promoting and implementing evidence-based, best, promising, and emerging practices for preventing and ending homelessness. California CoCs receive approximately $400 million each year through the CoC Program to help fund these practices. For more information click on the following link: https://www.hudexchange.info/
