The Continuum of Care Program (CoC) is designed to assist individuals (including unaccompanied youth) and families experiencing homelessness and to provide the services needed to help such individuals move into transitional and permanent housing with the goal of long-term stability. More broadly, the program is designed to: promote community-wide planning and strategic use of resources to address homelessness; improve coordination and integration with mainstream resources and other programs targeted to people experiencing homelessness; and improve data collection and performance measurement.

The grant application process is coordinated by the BEACH CoC Committee. Electronic applications for CoC funds and further information are available through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development at
