The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) solicits applications from communities to address the needs of those experiencing homelessness through a process called the Continuum of Care Program (CoC). View HUD CoC Funding Process.

The Virginia Homeless Solutions Program (VHSP) is a state- and federally-funded program to support Continuum of Care (CoC) strategies and homeless service and prevention programs. View VHSP Funding Process.

Both of these grant processes include the need for a collaborative application with supporting materials that are reviewed by our GRCoC Ranking Committee. The Ranking Committee uses the  GRCoC Funding Priorities to guide it's decisions.


Each year, the GRCoC develops funding priorities based on an assessment of community needs to guide allocation of funding from the HUD Continuum of Care Program and the Virginia Housing Solutions Program.

After a period of public comment, the Greater Richmond Continuum of Care board has approved the following priorities for funding and action for 2019.
