The Central Virginia Continuum of Care's (CVCoC) vision is for all persons and families experiencing homelessness in the City of Lynchburg and the Counties of Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford, and Campbell to have a permanent, safe, decent, and affordable place to call home by the year of 2024.
This plan outlines how the CVCoC intends to achieve its vision.
Policies & Procedures
The written standards have been established to ensure that persons experiencing homelessness who enter programs throughout the CoC will be given similar information and support to access and maintain permanent housing. To that end, these standards shall be reviewed at least every two years. The majority of these standards are based on the ESG and/or the HEARTH Interim Rules. There are, however, some additional standards that have been established by the CoC which will assist programs in meeting and exceeding performance outcomes and help the CoC reach the goal of ending homelessness.
