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!
