Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care
Tackling the issue of homelessness will take a consistent effort from all of us. The Continuum of Care (CoC) program is a national program designed to promote communitywide commitment to ending homelessness.
The Continuum of Care Board plans for the region, convenes diverse stakeholders that address and are impacted by homelessness, and makes regional policy recommendations to local leaders. Board members represent a diverse perspective including individuals who experienced homelessness, work in homelessness, and are impacted by homelessness.
Staffed by the Maricopa Association of Governments since 1999, the Continuum of Care has received over $400 million of funding and now supports more than 31 homeless assistance programs in 11 different agencies.
