ACEH works jointly with the Municipality of Anchorage to design, create, and lead implementation for the Anchorage community plan on homelessness. The initial Anchorage Community Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness was implemented in 2015. In 2018, this plan was updated, in partnership with the community, under the name Anchored Home.
A Continuum of Care (CoC) is a regional or local planning body that coordinates housing and services funding for homeless families and individuals. CoCs represent communities of all kinds, including major cities, suburbs and rural areas. In Alaska, there are two CoC’s, Anchorage (AK-500) and Balance of State (AK-501). Details on the Alaska balance of state CoC can be found on the Alaska Coalition on Housing & Homelessness website. Please visit the ACEH CoC page for more information on the CoC in Anchorage.
Homeless Management INformation System
Alaska has a unified database that tracks homeless services provided throughout the state. The Institute for Community Alliances (ICA) has been contracted to administer the system. Please see ICA’s Alaska HMIS page for more information or if you are a provider interesting in participating.
