CoC Program Standards

In February 2020, the CoC’s System Performance, Data and Research Line of Work will bring a recommendation to update the Program Model Chart to the CoC Board of Director for review and approval.

Both documents are available on the All Chicago website. The Program Model updates cover these three models:

  • Shelter
  • Youth Rapid Re-housing 
  • Joint Component Transitional Housing – Permanent Housing Rapid Re-housing

Community members are encouraged to read all documents and provide feedback at one of the sessions below or through the Program Model Chart Feedback form by Friday, February 14, 2020. Should you have any questions, please contact Karen Kowal.

CoC Program Monitoring

The goals of Chicago Continuum of Care Program Monitoring are to:

  • Proactively assist projects with efforts to comply with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations.  Although CoC program monitoring does not exhaustively address all HUD program requirements, this process addresses areas that HUD prioritizes.
  • Provide guidance and technical assistance opportunities to CoC-funded projects.
  • Help resolve performance concerns related to policies, procedures, and outcomes.
  • Ensure there is consistency in how agencies and projects implement their CoC-funded programs.

A three-tiered monitoring process was piloted in 2018, which is continuing in 2019. All Chicago uses the selection process outlined in the CoC Program Monitoring Process Policy to determine which agencies and projects to monitor. Additionally, All Chicago provides an opportunity for agencies to self-identify interest in receiving a monitoring visit. If your agency would like to have its HUD CoC-funded project considered for monitoring, please complete the monitoring self-selection form to request monitoring and technical assistance. All Chicago will determine whether those interested will be selected based upon staff capacity.
