The CoC is currently prioritizing households for housing and services through CES according to HUD Order CPD-16-11 , which mandates that those with the longest lengths of time homeless and most severe service needs be assisted first.
How does HUD define Literally Homeless? Literally homeless is someone that is living in a shelter, a motel that is paid by DSS/another charitable organization, on the street, or place not meant for human habitation i.e. living somewhere with no running water, heat, and electric (vehicle, tent, etc.)
Please continue to work with all other community systems to resolve your homelessness prior to our office, as this is only one avenue to pursue housing.
Please ensure that we have the most up-to-date contact information available so that we can find you when an opportunity for services and housing becomes available.
If you need any assistance navigating the above resources contact the LICH Hotline at 631-464-4314 x118 and leave a detailed message regarding your current needs.
