CoC Relief Funding Work Group
February 10, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
This Working Group was established at a special CoC Board Meeting held on May 7, 2021 as a response to the influx of relief funding coming the city, county and state. The goal of the RFWG is to create recommendations for the CoC on how best to leverage the influx of funding to prevent and end homelessness in Chicago. The recommendations will go to the CoC Board and can inform local and state funders in their efforts to maximize and leverage funding opportunities.

- Emergency Housing Vouchers – Chicago Allocation is 1,097 vouchers.
- State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds – Chicago Allocation is $1,886,591,388; Illinois Allocation is $8,127,679,948.
