People and Agencies in Action

The purpose of the SICOCN is to bring together public and private community based organizations, government, representatives and consumers to identify ways to serve the homeless by identifying gaps and proposing action to fill those gaps.  This includes seeking and managing grant funding.


The FY 2016 Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition application was submitted Monday September 12, 2016.  See more about our local application process at the HUD NOFA tab.

The change over to Service Point for our HMIS is proceeding.  The classroom training was held recently and the information that was shown there will be made available soon.  Password and information will also be sent. There will be webinars on different topics and that information is also forthcoming.

See the SICOCN goals under the NEWS; Our Network tab.

The next SICOCN MEETING will be on November 3, 2016 at Lifeboat Shelter in Mt Vernon.  Click on link for more details – See you there!                                                     Map Quest
