Thank you for participating in the Continuum of Care (CoC) Check-up self- assessment. The CoC Check-up is a new process designed by HUD to help CoCs determine their current capacity and performance and the degree to which CoCs are prepared for HEARTH implementation. Using a self-administered on-line tool, the CoC Check-up helps CoCs to rate their proficiency across various functional domains and indicators, examine CoC trend data contained in the Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX), and establish a CoC Action Plan to guide capacity and performance improvements. The assessment results obtained through the Check-up will create a baseline against which your CoC can measure progress from year to year.

Additionally, starting next year, CoCs that request technical assistance from HUD will be required to have completed the CoC Check-up. Check-up results and the CoC Action Plan will serve as a starting point for any HUD technical assistance.

At the national level, collecting aggregate information from nearly 500 CoCs across the country will enable HUD to better understand the types of issues and needs CoCs have and effectively direct technical assistance resources accordingly.
