Using CoC Program Funds for Infectious Disease Preparedness and Response


Date Published: March 2020


Continuum of Care (CoC) Program grant funds can be a useful resource to support communities’ public health outbreak preparedness and response efforts. It is essential for CoCs to be familiar with preparedness strategies and intervention measures and to work with key stakeholders to prevent and control the spread of infectious diseases among people experiencing homelessness. This document helps CoC Collaborative Applicants, HMIS Leads, and recipients understand the kinds of activity that are covered under specific component types.
