Governance

Objective

The business of the NYC Continuum of Care is managed by the Steering Committee which consists of government partners, coalitions, consumer advocates, stakeholder members, together with the three co-chairs.

This page will be regularly updated with news and information about the ongoing governance review and restructuring.

The following specific issues will be addressed:

  • Defining membership
  • Establishing guidelines for coalitions
  • Establishing a structure for consumer participation that is both effective and informative
  • Guidelines related to conflict of interest and recusal
  • Ensuring that items included in the Strategic Action Plan have formal mechanisms for moving forward

If you have questions or comments about the governance review, please email nycccoc@dss.nyc.gov.
