Continuum of Care (CoC)

The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program consists of projects that provide housing and supportive services to homeless individuals and families. The goal of projects funded under the CoC Program is to assist individuals and families with attaining and sustaining permanent housing as quickly as possible. In Snohomish County, CoC Program funds are currently used to support Permanent Supportive Housing and Rapid Rehousing. More information about the CoC Program for the Everett/Snohomish County CoC is available on the CoC Program webpage.


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) conducts an annual CoC Program national competition. Additional information on the CoC Program can be found on the HUD website: https://www.hudexchange.info/coc/. Snohomish County's Office of Community and Homeless Services (OCHS) is the lead agency responsible for completing and submitting an annual application for CoC Program funding on behalf of the Everett/Snohomish County CoC.
