Mandated by the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the HLC serves as the region’s designated Continuum of Care (CoC). The CoC strategizes and plans a coordinated, comprehensive approach to providing housing and services for people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness.

Each member (association or individual) of the Coalition has a voice on important community matters, including the opportunity to provide input on CoC decisions by participating in HLC committees and workgroups.
