NYC CoC Committees

Much of the work of the NYC Continuum of Care (NYC CoC) takes place in the context of committees. The NYC CoC has a number of committees, sub-committees, and workgroups that work to move the mission of the CoC forward in areas ranging from evaluation and performance improvement, to coordinated entry and income access.

Committee Co-Chairs may establish sub-committees or workgroups to carry out specific duties that advance the purpose of the committee. A sub-committee may be created to conduct ongoing work that supports the mission of the standing committee. A workgroup may be created to conduct a defined set of activities over a specific period of time. To learn more about CoC Committees, please view Part VI of the Governance Charter.

A list of all NYC CoC committees can be found below. For further descriptions of each committee, including membership details, contact information for committee co-chairs, and meeting summaries, can be found by utilizing the Left Navigation.
