About HUD Continuum of Care (CoC)

HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) funding supports the development and implementation of the localized homeless response system to ensure homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring through coordinated community-based activities. Through a housing-focused approach, the goals of this funding are to assist households experiencing homelessness to quickly regain stability in permanent housing. These activities are designed to reduce the overall length of homelessness in the community, the number of households experiencing homelessness, and the overall rate of formerly homeless households returning to homelessness.

The grant application process is coordinated by the BEACH​ CoC Committee. Every year, the Virginia Beach Housing & Neighborhood Preservation submits the CoC application for funding to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for Virginia Beach.​
