Organizational Membership Tiers and Rates

Membership dues are calculated on a sliding scale based on 330h funding or annual budget for homeless programs. Organizational Membership is good for one year from the date of payment receipt. (Note: Organizational Membership is restricted to nonprofit entities whose missions align with the Council’s. For-profit organizations may join the Council as Corporate Affiliates.)

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 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 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
  • Primary care associations
  • Advocacy organizations
  • Continuum of care
  • Government entities that provide services (non-health) for people experiencing homelessness

Tier 4 organizations have never been members or have not been members for at least two years. First-time members pay only $500 for the first year. Commit to a second year of membership within 45 days and pay only $500 for the second year as well.
