Dear Tribal Leader Letter– Tribal Consultation for Continuum of Care Program
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (Public Law 116-260, approved December 27, 2020) included language allowing participation of Indian Tribes and Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHE) in the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program (Section 102). In accordance with the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Tribal Consultation Policy, HUD is reaching out to tribal leaders to solicit feedback. Specifically, the Department seeks comments on the following points:
- Participation in the upcoming FY 2021 CoC Program Competition process and availability to coordinate with neighboring CoCs;
- Homeless needs within the tribal areas and how CoC Program funds can help address homelessness;
- Challenges related to homelessness and recommendations where CoC Program funds can assist with housing and services; and
- Based on the statutory and regulatory requirements and restrictions, what obstacles are anticipated and recommendations to assist Indian Tribes and TDHE’s towards addressing, reducing, and ending homelessness.
