About the Continuum of Care

The Washtenaw County Continuum of Care (CoC) coordinates our community’s policies, strategies, and activities toward ending homelessness.

The CoC's work includes gathering and analyzing information to determine the needs of people experiencing homelessness in Washtenaw County, implementing strategic responses, educating the community on homelessness issues, providing advice and input on the operations of homeless services, measuring CoC performance, and providing coordinated oversight to Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and CoC grant recipients, both of which provide homelessness and housing programs in Washtenaw County. 

Washtenaw OCED is designated as the CoC & Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) lead agency to ensure compliance to federal & state regulations, as well as submissions of mandated reporting and annual funding competitions.
