As a result of reorganization within the Division of Housing Stabilization (DHS), the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is looking to hire someone to lead operations of the MA Balance of State Continuum of Care (CoC). The Balance of State CoC has grown significantly in recent years because of CoC mergers. This position will lead CoC systems planning, including regional coordinated entry, coordination with state and federal homeless resources, administration of the CoC’s PSH and other projects, and coordination with the HMIS and ESG teams within DHS.
The Balance of State Continuum of Care Supervisor has direct operational oversight of the Balance of State Commonwealth Continuum of Care (BoS-CoC), and works closely with the Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) and the Individual Shelter System teams within the Individual Homelessness and Federal Grants Unit. The incumbent is responsible for coordinating the annual Balance of State CoC grant application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and for convening statewide CoC meetings as needed. Under the supervision of the Director of Individual Homelessness and Federal Grants, the incumbent coordinates the procurement and contracting process with other professional staff for the CoC program, and ensures provider compliance with contracted performance measures and outcomes, and HUD-mandated Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) data reporting. This incumbent serves as the primary liaison to HUD CoC funded programs.
The Balance of State Continuum of Care Manager is responsible for providing leadership in the planning, policy and operation of the Commonwealth’s Continuum of Care (CoC) housing and homelessness service programs. As the HUD-designated convening agency for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this position oversees all planning and policy development for the statewide CoC, currently made up of 13 Continua.
The Division of Housing Stabilization (DHS), within the Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD), oversees expenditures of over $500M annually providing housing stabilization, shelter, and rehousing services to thousands of Massachusetts residents.
