As the new authority is stood up, the Seattle/King County Continuum of Care (CoC) is soliciting new members to serve as the Continuum of Care Board, or Advisory Committee.

Recruitment for the Advisory Committee positions is now closed. Thank you for your interest.



The CoC is a broad coalition of stakeholders dedicated to the mission of the CoC. This includes people with experiences of homelessness, service providers representing various populations and interventions, representatives of culturally specific constituencies, funders, the faith community, researchers and universities, health care providers and others.

The Board will perform two main functions:

  1. It will apprise the Implementation Board on policy and technical issues on which it has made decisions, and forward for approval any committee recommendations that it identifies as sensitive or political in nature, or for which it does not have decision-making authority.
  2. It will function as the CoC Board for actions required under the HUD regulations at 24 CFR §578, including approval of committee recommendations that do not have appropriation/political components
