 Our Purpose

  1. To develop a long-term strategic plan and manage a year-round planning effort that addresses the identified needs of homeless individuals and households; the availability and accessibility of existing housing and services; and the opportunities for linkages with mainstream housing and services resources.
  2. To prepare an application for McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento) competitive grants.

These resources provide housing and supportive services for people who are homeless. The funds are made available through a national competition announced each year in HUD’s Notice of Funding Availability (known as the NOFA). Project Applicants demonstrate broad community participation and identify resources and gaps in the community’s approach to providing outreach, emergency shelter, and transitional and permanent housing, as well as related services for addressing homelessness. Projects also include action steps to end homelessness, prevent a return to homelessness, and establish local funding priorities.
