On January 14, 2020, HUD announced $2.16 billion in grants to provide funding to 6,595 local homeless housing and service programs across the U.S. and its territories. These Continuum of Care (CoC) grants provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, states, and local governments to quickly rehouse individuals and families experiencing homelessness and provide support while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused by homelessness.
