The Funding Review Team (FRT) reviews program outcomes, compliance, and data quality in order to make funding recommendations to the CoC Board for the Continuum of Care (CoC) and the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) annual funding competitions. The FRT only has duties during the annual CoC and ESG Funding Competitions. View the Continuum of Care Funding Reports. View the Emergency Solutions Grant Funding Reports.


Currently, the FRT is still in need of one to two additional members. Staff is actively working with current members as well as the CoC Board to identify candidates. Candidates cannot have a conflict of interest with ESG and / or CoC funds and programs (e.g. cannot be part of an agency that receives CoC and / or ESG funds). Any interested individuals should contact Laura Urteaga-Fuentes.
