Calculating Unmet Need for Homeless Individuals and Families
HUD has developed this guidance to assist CoCs in completing the unmet need calculation. However, communities may choose to continue using their own procedures to determine unmet need. The guidance introduces standardized formulas and procedures for calculating unmet need and identifies the data needed for the calculations. A document called "Worksheets for Calculating Unmet Need" is also available to assist with these calculations.
Guidance for Merging CoCs
CoCs sometimes consider consolidating, or merging, with another – or more than one other - CoC to achieve improved coordination of services, more efficient resource allocation, and regional planning to address homelessness. In recognition of these advantages, HUD adopted a policy for calculating Pro-Rata Need that ensures that CoCs will not lose funds by merging.
