Continuum of Care & Homeless Services
CoC Program Competition
Prince George’s County Department of Social Services is responsible for coordinating the County’s Continuum of Care (CoC) Program competition that is funded through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) application process is now open.
Youth Homeless Demonstration Program
The Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP) is an exciting new initiative designed to reduce the number of youth experiencing homelessness. The goal of the YHDP is to support selected communities, including rural, suburban, and urban areas across the United States, in the development and implementation of a coordinated community approach to preventing and ending youth homelessness. Prince George’s County was selected as a YHDP site in the 2018 competition.
Coordinated Community Plan
Development of the Coordinated Community Plan (CCP) was a true community effort by a diverse group of more than 120 individuals, organizations, community leaders, and youth and young adults who gave generously of their time, experience, expertise, resources, and passion to develop the County’s framework to effectively end and prevent all experiences of homelessness and housing instability for youth and young adults in our community. The level of enthusiasm for this project that was demonstrated from all areas of the community is a testament to the commitment the County continues to hold to ensuring that youth homelessness ceases to occur within our borders. From contributions to the original application that resulted in Prince George’s County being selected as one of the third round YHDP communities, to the many hours of brainstorming, strategizing, and sharing of experiences that went into the development of this aggressive Plan and accompanying projects, to the universal support of all participants—local, state, and federal—was, and remains, crucial to the success of this Plan and the efforts of Prince George’s County to end and prevent youth homelessness. Only together can we end and prevent experiences of homelessness and housing instability for youth and young adults in our community.
