The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program consists of projects that provide housing and supportive services to formerly 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 various projects, including Transitional Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, and Rapid Rehousing. More information about the Continuum of Care Program is available on the CoC Program webpage.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) conducts an annual Continuum of Care (CoC) Program national competition. 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. More information about Continuum of Care (CoC) funding is available on the CoC Program Funding webpage.
The Partnership to End Homelessness is an unincorporated organization created to promote county-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness.
