Hudson County Alliance to End Homelessness (HCAEH)

The Hudson County Alliance to End Homelessness (HCAEH) is a consortium of homeless housing, service and shelter providers, consumers, advocates, and government representatives working together to shape countywide planning and decision making. The HCAEH is led by the Hudson County Division of Housing and Community Development and serves as the Continuum of Care for purposes of receiving funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Continuum of Care Program. Each year the HCAEH releases a local funding application to determine the projects which will be included in the annual application to HUD for homeless assistance funding.

Specifically, the purpose of the HCAEH is to:

  • Identify the gaps and needs of homeless households in Hudson County and participate in the process of prioritizing local and state funding to meet these needs;
  • Coordinate citywide applications for homeless housing and service funding, including but not limited to Hudson County’s annual application for HUD McKinney-Vento funding; and
  • Track trends and adjust priorities to meet the changing needs of homeless households.

The HCAEH is made stronger through the participation of broad and diverse members. Join the HCAEH and help us continue to develop and deepen the discussion on homelessness in our community. If you want to get involved or have any questions about the HCAEH, please contact Katelyn Ravensbergen at 201-369-4520 or kravensbergen@hcnj.us.

Join the HCAEH!

All those interested in the activities of the HCAEH are encouraged to register for the email list.
