The HEARTH Act creates new requirements for governing your Continuum of Care. At the same time, communities are exploring ways to use governance to help promote and implement system change. This workshop will provide examples of governance models that meet these goals. It will address issues such as funding a governance structure, ensuring broad community participation, efficient decision–making, oversight, accountability, and outcomes.
