Homeless Programs

The N.C. Interagency Council for Coordinating Homeless Programs (ICCHP) advises the governor and the secretary of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services on issues affecting people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Through an Executive Order, the ICCHP is charged with providing recommendations for joint and cooperative efforts to better meet the needs of the homeless residents of North Carolina. The ICCHP works with its member agencies on special initiatives aimed at ending homelessness in our state. ICCHP provides minimal funding for specific projects throughout the year.

The ICCHP consists of 28 governor-appointees representing:

  • non-profit agencies serving the homeless
  • county and city government
  • housing authorities
  • the private sector
  • the state departments of Administration, Commerce, Correction, Cultural Resources, Health and Human Services, Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Public Instruction, and the Community Colleges System
  • N.C. Housing Finance Agency
  • North Carolina General Assembly

A seat on the council is also reserved for a representative of homeless and/or formerly homeless people. The special advisor to the secretary chairs the ICCHP. The homeless policy specialist is the DHHS staff liaison to the ICCHP.
