  2. 2. The Old CoC Process 1. Get all the providers around the table. 2. Discuss overall goals from HUD’s perspective. 3. Everyone votes for their own agency to continue to receive funding. 4. The CoC application writers make the vote fit the HUD scoring criteria. 5. We only considered HUD Funding.
  3. 3. The New CoC Process 1. Form a CoC Governance Committee made up of providers and community members (at least 51% of non providers). 2. Utilize the HUD priorities to lead the discussion for HUD funding. 3. Discuss scoring criteria and standards for improving our system of services in the community, including HUD funding, but also other forms of funding. 4. Discuss the use of data to drive decisions. 5. Determine an impartial group to score each project within the specified criteria. 6. Discuss as a group the monitoring of standards throughout the year.
