This one-time grant, awarded to organizations moving the needle on family homelessness, will allow the Coalition to increase and sustain flexible financial assistance linked to shelter diversion and rapid exit programs, while strengthening the state’s regional homeless networks, known as Coordinated Access Networks. CCEH also seeks to leverage the grant by enlisting other partners, sectors and funders across the state to collaborate and contribute resources towards a coordinated push to end family and child homelessness.
