As required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, each HUD recognized CoC is required to establish a CoC Governance Structure to meet the requirements and responsibilities regulated to a CoC by HUD’s CoC Program Interim Rule.
The Tamp/Hillsborough County CoC’s Governance Charter was formally adopted and implemented on September 1, 2016 by a final vote of the Tampa Hillsborough Homeless Initiative Board of Directors after being drafted, reviewed and approved by the CoC Executive Planning Committee. The Governance Charter establishes the membership and voting requirements within the CoC, the responsibilities of members, committees and the THHI Board of Directors
