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 performance measures that allow us to evaluate how well the system, as a whole, and individual projects are meeting the goal of preventing and ending homelessness for our neighbors. The project performance measures will also be used to evaluate the performance of individual projects in the current VHSP and the FY20 HUD Continuum of Care funding processes.

On February 7, the Greater Richmond Continuum of Care (GRCoC) Board voted to adopt the 2020 Funding and Action Priorities, as well as the 2020 System and Project Performance Measurements.
