The HEARTH Act consolidates the three separate McKinney-Vento homeless assistance programs, including the Supportive Housing Program, Shelter Plus Care Program, and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation SRO Program into a single grant program known as the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program. The former Shelter Plus Care (S+C) Program provides rental assistance in connection with matching supportive services. The S+C Program provides a variety of permanent housing choices, accompanied by a range of supportive services funded through other sources.
Guides, tools, webinars, and other resources were provided to assist grantees and program partners in designing and implementing their programs. They are available now for historical reference.
