Explanation

§                     The Charlotte Mecklenburg Continuum of Care (CoC) is a collaboration among the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, and their partners with the purpose of ending or preventing homelessness. 

§                     Each year, the CoC receives approximately $5,600,000 in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to fund its activities. Housing and Neighborhood Services serves on behalf of the CoC as the applicant for and the recipient of the planning grant to support its planning activities.

§                     Acceptance of these grant funds will be used in collaboration with Socialserve.com to find project management services related to the HousingCLT landlord consortium project.

-                     Socialserve.com connects people experiencing homelessness with available rental properties. 

-                     HousingCLT is a community collaboration among rental property owners, professional property managers, and services agencies to provide housing for people who face, and who are experiencing homelessness, with significant barriers to securing safe, permanent, and affordable housing.
