Tri-County Homeless Interagency Council
The Tri-County Homeless Interagency Council is the Cape Fear Area’s HUD - approved homeless Continuum of Care (NC-506) encompassing Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender Counties. The Continuum of Care (CoC) is an alliance of service providers, local government agencies, and other public interests whose common goal is the reduction and ultimate elimination of homelessness in the Cape Fear Region.
Beginning in 1995, HUD encouraged the establishment of Continuums of Care in order to coordinate services and housing resources for those experiencing homelessness. On an annual basis, our CoC brings in approximately $1 million in federal, state, and local funds to provide emergency services and housing to individuals and families who are homeless. With the passage of the HEARTH Act in 2009 and the Opening Doors federal strategic plan to end homelessness, Continua of Care are required to have an administrative backbone and to further align their sources of federal, state, and local dollars. In an effort to meet the expectations of federal and state partners, the CoC has partnered with the Cape Fear Council of Governments to staff a CoC Administrator.
The COG provides administrative support to the CoC to ensure all the federal mandates for CoCs are met, resources are aligned to the greatest extent possible, and members are informed of best practices in creating effect systems of ending homelessness.
For more information on the Tri-County Homeless Interagency Council and to become a member, please contact CoC Director, Judy Herring.
