The Kentucky Balance of State Continuum of Care (KY BoS CoC) refers to the comprehensive approach of addressing homelessness through a continuum of housing programs and services. These services include outreach, intake, and assessment; emergency shelter services; transitional housing services; and permanent supportive housing for people with disabilities.
KHC is responsible for leading the Commonwealth's efforts to develop an effective BoS CoC program. KHC applies for funding from the U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) on behalf of other agencies and nonprofits to provide homeless programs and resources throughout the state and also provides technical assistance and, in some cases, contributes matching funds.
