Continuum of Care Program (CoC)

The Continuum of Care (CoC) program is a federal grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address homelessness. HUD charges communities that receive these funds under the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act with specific responsibilities. The HEARTH Act amends and reauthorizes the McKinney-Vento Homelessness Assistance Act with substantial changes, including: consolidation of HUD's competitive grant programs; change in HUD's definition of homelessness and chronic homelessness; a simplified match requirement, an increase in prevention resources and increased emphasis on performance.

The RCCC is a large cooperative community group consisting of representatives of the 18 cities within the county, nonprofit service providers and other interested parties.  The RCCC meets on a quarterly basis to identify gaps in homeless services, establish funding priorities, and to pursue an overall systemic approach to addressing homelessness.  

The Regional Continuum of Care Council (RCCC) is a community-based forum focused on homelessness in the San Diego region.  Agendas and minutes are prepared by members of the RCCC and are not intended to represent the opinion of the County of San Diego.
