Reallocation Policy

The Monitoring and Evaluation Committee annually monitors each CoC grant recipient and completes a report to the CoC Board. The findings of the monitoring and evaluation report are used by the committee to determine whether a recommendation is made to the CVCoC Board to reduce or reallocate a project’s funding. The committee considers fiscal responsibility, compliance with program guidelines, performance, outcomes and use of best practices when making a recommendation.

The Board considers the Monitoring and Evaluation Committee’s recommendations for renewed, reduced or reallocated funding. Each project is evaluated based on extent to which the project is necessary and addresses the CoC’s priorities identified in the CVCoC Strategic Plan to End Homelessness.  Criteria to be considered in a decision to renew, reduce or reallocate a project/project type is included in the policy below:
