Continuums of Care and ConPlan Coordination

ConPlan Collaboration
Includes ESG Funding

The U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) released a guidebook and video designed to facilitate coordination between Continuums of Care (CoCs) and Consolidated Plan (ConPlan) jurisdictions.

This guide and video are complementary tools that explain the consultation requirements for Continuums of Care (CoCs) and Consolidated Plan (Con Plan) jurisdictions, including those with and without Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) allocations.

In addition to explaining the minimum regulatory consultation requirements, the guide also identifies strategies for meaningful collaboration between CoCs and Con Plan jurisdictions sharing the same geographic area. The guidance can be used to inform emerging community partnerships, whatever their current stage of collaboration, and their continuing evolution. The intended audience is CoC leadership and Con Plan jurisdiction staff involved in developing the Con Plan or administering ESG grants.

The video discusses the benefits of collaboration and assists key stakeholders in understanding why and with whom they should collaborate.
