Tier 1: 330h funded HCH Centers

Tier 1 organizations are federally-funded Health Care for the Homeless Centers that receive 330h funding (including sub-contractors). Membership dues for this tier are based on the amount of the 330h grant or the amount of the sub-contract.

Tier 2: HCH Programs (not funded by 330h)

Tier 2 organizations have homeless health programs, but do not receive direct 330h funding. Membership dues for this tier are based on the homeless health program budget.

Examples of Tier 2 organizations include:

  • Health Care Centers that do not receive 330h funding
  • Medical respite/recuperative care programs
  • Community health centers providing homeless services
  • Hospitals

Tier 3: Programs with non-health care homeless services (not funded by 330h)

Tier 3 organizations provide non-health care homeless services and do not receive 330h funding. Membership dues for this tier are based on the homeless services budget.

Examples of Tier 3 organizations include:

  • Nonprofits that provide services (non-health) for people experiencing homelessness
