Homeless Prevention & Response System Advisory Council

The HUD designated governing body for the Anchorage Continuum of Care (CoC).

Work Session & Monthly Meeting

The Homeless Prevention & Response System (HPRS) Advisory Council (AC) will meet during this 1-hour period to discuss relevant Anchorage Continuum of Care initiatives and current events.

Leading the work on homelessness prevention & response.

The Homeless Prevention & Response System (HPRS) Advisory Council connects homeless service provider needs and issues to ACEH strategy. The Advisory Council is also a forum for members to learn about what is happening in homelessness response and share their thoughts and opinions.

What is a Continuum of Care (CoC) Program?

Responsibilities of a CoC include designating and operating the Homeless Management Information System, designing and implementing the process associated with applying for CoC Program funds, and planning for the CoC (including coordinating the implementation of a housing and service system within its geographic area that meets the needs of the individuals and families who experience homelessness there).

Work Session & Monthly Meeting

HPRS Advisory Council meets on the 4th Thursday of every month to discuss relevant Anchorage Continuum of Care initiatives and current events.
