Question: Hello! Curious to hear if any other CoCs have had experiences with lived expertise advocates, who receive compensation for their services, have seen any of their benefits reduced due to such compensation? We have been experiencing it here in the LA CoC, which works almost as a disincentive for these advocates to provide their services. Thank you!
Question: How is your CoC meeting the new HMIS requirements for Coordinated Entry which go into effect October 1? Are you creating a new CES program or are you embedding the CE data elements into existing programs? If you have already updated your HMIS to meet the new requirement, please share what your experience has been and any recommendations you have. Thanks!
Question: Greetings, Working on the first CESH program request for funding. Has anyone found any additional details on the 40% cap on operating support budget line and 40% cap on CESH allocation annually. CESH statues is vague, are there other resources to explain theses caps further? how did you set up the sub-recipients in light of the caps?
