The CoC embraces the policy priorities outlined in the FY22 CoC NOFO to:
- Ending homelessness for all persons.
- Use a Housing First approach.
- Reducing unsheltered homelessness.
- Improving System Performance.
- Partnering with Housing, Health, and Service agencies.
- Racial Equity.
- Improving Assistance to LGBTQ+ Individuals.
- Persons with Lived Experience.
- Increasing Affordable Housing Supply.
To best reflect the CoC’s policy priorities and position the CoC to meet its highest needs, Our Path Home has operationalized its local funding priorities in the following order:
- Permanent housing projects that have, with CoC support, voluntarily reallocated to better serve a documented local need reflected in project performance and/or the CoC's suite of data monitoring tools.
- PSH projects that serve persons meeting the eligibility criteria of DedicatedPLUS or chronic homelessness at the time of entry.
- Rapid re-housing projects, especially those serving all individuals including adult-only households.
Note: new projects will only be funded through reallocation of renewal projects that the CoC evaluates and ranks as part of its local competition or through the bonus project processes.
