Heading Home Advisory Committee

The Heading Home Advisory Committee is the community-directed entity responsible for oversight of homelessness planning, coordinating, and funding activities in the St Louis County Continuum of Care (CoC).  


Each year Continuums of Care (CoCs) conduct two counts that provide all stakeholders with the size and scope of homelessness in our community, and the available resources to address it.  The Point In Time (PIT) Count is an annual census of all individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

PIT/HIC Count 2020


Each year, HUD administers a grant program called the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Competition, also known as the Notice of Funding Availability, or “NOFA.”  This roughly $3 million grant supports infrastructure and services for people experiencing homelessness within the St. Louis County CoC planning region. St. Louis County has been designated by the Heading Home Governance Board as the Collaborative Applicant, which is responsible for coordinating the NOFA in our community.  This website contains relevant information and documentation for the NOFA, and will be updated as needed, especially during the competition phase, from July through the fall.
