The Federal Government is encouraging communities to reduce homelessness by allocating resources to permanent solutions such as rapid re-housing and permanent supportive housing. This template was created to help identify how resources in the Continuum of Care region are currently allocated, how resources will be utilized, and how existing resources will be reallocated.

Communities interested in utilizing the template should download it and review the instructions and instructional video. They should then bring together homeless assistance providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to help fill out the template, which requires homeless assistance providers to provide information about how much funding they receive, the source of the funding, and what strategies the funding is used for. The various stakeholders can also plan for how funding will change over the coming year and over the next five years.  

The video below explains how to fill out and use the template. Questions on the template should be sent to thecenter@naeh.org.

In the webinar below, Norm Suchar reviews how to complete the Continuum of Care Spending Plan Template and answers questions regarding the template. This webinar was originally held for the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The PowerPoint slides from the webinar are available for download above.
