HUD Posts Interim Continuum of Care Rule
The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 consolidates HUD's competitive homelessness assistance grant programs into one new "Continuum of Care (CoC) Program." The interim rule posted on the HUDHRE website over the weekend focuses on regulatory implementation of the new CoC Program, including the CoC Program planning process.
The regulation was published in the Federal Register. The interim regulation will be effective 30 days after publication in the Federal Register, the effective day be August 30, 2012. CoC Program recipients and subrecipients are reminded that the final Homeless Definition is in effect for administration of the CoC Program interim rule.
To assist CoCs, stakeholders, recipients and subrecipients in the successful implementation of the new consolidated program a number of resources are available on the HUDHRE website.
