The Western Massachusetts region is home to two HUD-funded Continua of Care (CoC): Springfield-Hampden CoC and Three County CoC (including Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire Counties). These CoCs, 2 of over 400 across the country, are the HUD-mandated vehicle for distributing federal funds to prevent and end homelessness. The Network is pleased to provide a coordinating umbrella for both of our CoCs to maximize the sharing of information, strategy and outcomes. This coordination occurs through our regularly convening Network committee meetings, trainings and other gatherings.
