MCADSV and NNEDV will submit comments to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on their regulation of coordinated assessment systems, also known as Continuum of Care (CoC). The deadline for comments has been extended until November 16. MCADSV and program members will participate in two conference calls with NNEDV to discuss these significant HUD regulations. A related memo with draft comments and questions for local programs was sent via the MCADSV member listserv on October 12, 2012.
NNEDV webinars on proposed HUD regulations for shelters, housing programs
NNEDV concerns are that a coordinated assessment could have a significant impact on the way domestic violence shelters and housing programs operate and how victims of domestic violence access services. A primary question is: how should victim services providers engage with the system (opt out, participate fully or have a separate system)? The regulations also cover confidentiality, record keeping, transfers and termination of assistance. If you have any questions feel free to contact MCADSV at 888-666-1611 or via our website.
