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. The Haven serves as the Continuum of Care for the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle, Louisa, Fluvanna, Greene and Nelson Counties. The Service Provider Council coordinates the competitive ranking of eligible projects based on criteria reflecting unmet community needs and submits the regional application of funding. HUD provides funding for Shelter + Care, Supportive Housing Programs and Single-Room Occupancy projects through the Continuum of Care competition.
The chart below reflects which programs were funded in this Continuum of Care over the last several years:
