MS Balance of State CoC is accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Continuum of Care funding cycle. This funding will renew/fund projects that have end dates in 2018 and continue through 2019.
MS Balance of State CoC will conduct an analysis of its existing projects to determine the extent to which each project addresses the goals of:
- End chronic homelessness by 2017
- Ending homelessness among households with children by 2020
- End youth homelessness by 2020
- End veteran homelessness by 2015
MS Balance of State CoC may reduce and/or eliminate funds for renewal projects to develop new projects through the reallocation of those funds. Projects that are underperforming, obsolete, or ineffective may be reduced or eliminated.
