CoC Corner

Autumn 2015

The 3 County CoC has a new Wiki featuring local data, outcomes reports, HMIS & reporting info, and general CoC info: Take a look.

Vox pop. Our CoCs are seeking input on performance benchmarks for the coming year. Hampden County CoC blogged about it. The 3 County CoC had the first of several meetings during which an overview report was distributed alongside a look at recent trends among priority populations.

What is a CoC?!
Our local CoCs (“Continuum of Care”) administer and coordinate housing and homeless services programs funded by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”). In Western Massachusetts, the Berkshire/Franklin/Hampshire (“3 County”) CoC and the Hampden County CoC administer more than $3M per year in support of transitional and permanent housing programs operated by 16 different organizations.

Enough with the acronyms, take me to more information.
