4. Other coordinating services that will help to reduce homelessness or reduce the length of stay for those experiencing homelessness or helping clients remain stably housed after experiencing homelessness.
5. Any other coordination of services that would assist those experiencing homelessness to remain stably housed.
All proposals should address how they will provide coordinating services within the 5 county Continuum of Care.
