Balance of State Governance and Structure

Balance of State Committees

The Steering Committee is the decision-making body for the Balance of State CoC. The Steering Committee meets monthly via conference call to discuss issues pertaining to the CoC, to pass motions on official business, and to share information from local Regional Committees. Regional Committee elected leads serve as the voting members of the Steering Committee.
Regional Committees coordinate local work and planning within the Balance of State. Regional Committees are required to hold annual elections to choose their official Regional Leads, who sit on the Steering Committee. Currently, there are approximately 25 active Regional Committees in the Balance of State. More information is available on the Regional Committee webpage.
Subcommittees provide a forum for program staff to discuss program performance, priorities, and best practice models. There are currently three subcommittees: Rapid Re-Housing, Permanent Supportive Housing, and HMIS Data Quality. The subcommittees meet via conference call and webinar on a quarterly or bi-monthly basis. Subcommittee meetings are posted on the NCCEH website calendar.
Additional committees are convened during the CoC application process. The Scorecard Committee creates the scorecard that is used to evaluate new and renewal project applications. The Project Review
Committee uses the scorecard to review and score project applications. Both committees are comprised of representatives from the Regional Committees.
