The Homeless Alliance of Western New York is the designated Continuum of Care (CoC) agency for Erie County. As such, it is responsible for compiling the annual Continuum of Care grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). In July 2013, the Niagara County CoC merged with our CoC. By the end of 2013, most providers were officially entering data into HMIS. We will not present Niagara County data in this report. This report covers the time period from 10/1/12 to 9/30/13. Niagara County data is only available from July to September of 2013. We will present information about homelessness in the combined Erie-Niagara Metropolitan area in future annual report.
