The 20-member committee is comprised primarily of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), many with lived experience of homelessness and seeks to uncover the ways in which BIPOC experience homelessness and our local homelessness system. Activities include:

  • Developing an action plan to guide the decision-making process of the CoC Board over the next three to five years;
  • Incorporate racial equity goals and tools into each of the CoC Board’s committees when they develop their annual work plans; and
  • Advise on the development and implementation of the CoC’s work, goals, and tools.
