Continuum of Care


Fulton County has worked with a diverse array of partners to develop solutions to end homelessness. Staffed by the Department of Community Development, the Continuum of Care (CoC) has successfully competed well in the national application for funding. This award has been an important and consistent source of funding for the community.

Continuum of Care Board
The Continuum of Care Board is the decision-making body for the Continuum of Care. Members of the Board include local officials, service provider agencies, formerly homeless individuals, and advocates. The Board addresses issues relating to homelessness and approves the annual application for homeless assistance funding to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and addresses regional issues relating to homelessness. Aligned with the goals of HUD’s Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act, the Board works toward ending homelessness by focusing on rapid transition to housing solutions.
