The Community Service Council is the designated Collaborative Applicant for the Tulsa City and County Continuum of Care (CoC), known as A Way Home For Tulsa (AWH4T), a program administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act. A Way Home For Tulsa is governed by a formal council of 23 agencies in Tulsa, identified below, representing a broad spectrum of public and private sectors, as mandated by The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act.)
In addition to the implementation of a governance structure, the HEARTH Act also codified expanded roles and responsibilities of CoC lead agencies. Under the oversight of the AWH4T governance council, CSC manages the local process for applying, reviewing and prioritizing project applications for funding each year in HUD’s CoC Homeless Assistance Grants competition.
