The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is currently accepting applications from communities for its Continuum of Care Grant, due 10/28/2011.  The purpose of Continuum of care funds are to reduce the incidence of homelessness in communities by assisting homeless individuals and families quickly in transitioning to self-sufficiency and permanent housing.

On Thursday October 20 at 2PM on the 5th Floor of City Hall, representatives from the Homeless Initiative Advisory Committee, the Homeless Coalition, and the City of Asheville’s Community Development Division will meet to review Asheville-Buncombe’s Continuum of Care grant application. This meeting is open to the public.

Each year, Asheville-Buncobme receives funding through the Continuum of Care to offer housing and services to people who are experiencing homelessness.   This community has a strong record in successfully implementing programs funded through this grant resulting in safe, stable housing for people experiencing homelessness.  This year, over $1 million dollars in funds are being requested.

At the meeting,  the community’s success with meeting the strategic goals of the grant will be discussed and the agencies managing the programs included in the grant will have an opportunity to discuss their application.

To see the grant announcement and access additional resouces, go to the HUD Homeless Resource Exchange.
