Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care Board

CoC-Board

Continuum of Care Background

The Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care has worked with a diverse array of partners to develop regional solutions to end homelessness. Each year, the expertise of the Board and community partners has resulted in more people being housed and supported in their quest for stability. Staffed by the Maricopa Association of Governments since 1999, the Continuum of Care has successfully competed well in the national application for funding. Over the years, the HUD funding award has increased and now supports more than 40 homeless assistance programs in 13 different agencies. This award has been an important and consistent source of funding for the community.


Continuum of Care Board

The Continuum of Care Board is the decision-making body for the Continuum of Care. Members of the Board include local officials, service provider agencies, formerly homeless individuals, and advocates. The Board addresses regional issues relating to homelessness and approves the annual application for homeless assistance funding to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and addresses regional issues relating to homelessness. Aligned with the goals of HUD’s Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act, the Board works toward ending homelessness by focusing on rapid transition to housing solutions.
