The NHIP has completed a ranking of Homeless Continuums of Care using data from system performance measures submitted in 2017. The rankings divide CoCs into Higher, Average and Lower Performers with separate rankings for each of the three (3) geographic divisions of Continuums. The NHIP cautions against reading too much into the ranking since many measures are not comparable due to differences in program allocation and resources in each community. The goal of the rankings is to provide a general look at CoCs that appear to be high performing and communities in need of improvement. The NHIP welcomes any comments about improving the rankings.
Rankings are provided for 364 CoCs with 30 CoCs unable to be ranked due to missing data on one or more performance measures. The NHIP also emphasizes that even the best run Continuums may have little impact on the new flow of persons into homelessness which is caused by macro-social and economic trends including continued increase in the formation of single adult households. Increasing or decreasing total homeless numbers does not necessarily reflect service quality.
