Housing Alliance DE is the CoC Lead Agency in Delaware. Each year we coordinate the successful submission of a funding application to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on behalf of our state. In 2018 Delaware was awarded $8.25 million. This was the largest CoC award in Delaware's history, and would not have been possible without the hard work of our talented partners throughout the state, working each day to end homelessness in our communities.
