Texas Balance of State Continuum of Care Program

The Continuum of Care (CoC) Program is designed to promote community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness; to provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, and local governments to quickly re-house homeless individuals, families, persons fleeing domestic violence, and youth while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness; to promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs by homeless individuals and families; and to optimize self-sufficiency among those experiencing homelessness.

Continuum of Care Program and Prospective Applicants

THN serves as the “Collaborative Applicant” for the TX BoS CoC and leads the HUD CoC Grant process. THN provides technical assistance and guidance to agencies and communities applying for funding to create new housing and service programs. Applicants must submit proposals through THN in the annual CoC Program Competition. This Prezi is a great overview of HUD’s CoC program.  We are interested in working with Service Partners we have not worked with before! If you are in a community without CoC Program Funding, or your Organization has never administered CoC Program Funding, we encourage you to review the materials below and reach out to us with any questions at txboscoc@thn.org.  If we have worked with you before, welcome back!
