TJACH solicited proposals from interested organizations to provide housing and/or supportive services for households experiencing homelessness. These submitted applications were scored by TJACH’s Project Evaluation Committee. These projects were then ranked and presented to the TJACH board for approval as the FY 2018 CoC Program Project Priority Listing for inclusion in the FY 2018 CoC Program Consolidated Application.

Background –

HUD has provided funds through this competitive process to support a variety of approaches to homelessness but has consistently preferred (both in policy statements and in funding decisions) that this funding be used for permanent supportive housing projects that adopt a housing first approach & philosophy. This CoC has used this funding source to support permanent supportive housing projects at Region Ten. HUD has been particularly focused on serving the needs of the chronically homeless through these permanent supportive housing processes.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has organized local areas of service providers into entities called Continuums of Care (CoC). CoCs are designed to increase local collaboration and communication in an effort to improve homelessness services. TJACH serves as the Continuum of Care for the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle, Louisa, Fluvanna, Greene and Nelson Counties.
