McKinney Homeless Assistance Act, HUD Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Competition. This program provides funds to states, local governments and nonprofit organizations to address the housing and service needs of homeless families and individuals. The program, administered by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), requires applicants to undertake a comprehensive planning process to identify homeless needs and resources along a Continuum of Care which includes: Outreach/Intake/Assessment; Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Permanent Housing; Supportive Services.

   Homeless programs funded under this initiative are:
