Board of Directors

The Homeless Services Consortium (HSC) Board of Directors is the governing body for the Madison/Dane County Continuum of Care (CoC). The HSC Board is responsible to operate the Continuum of Care, designate and operate a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), and engage in CoC planning. The HSC Board approves funding slates for both EHH (Emergency Solutions Grant, Homeless Prevention Program, Housing Assistance Program) and CoC funding competitions.
The HSC Board is made up of 14 voting members elected by qualified HSC members at the annual meeting.  Two additional voting members are appointed by the Youth Action Board and the Lived Experience Committee. An additional Board Member represents the lead HMIS function and is a non-voting member. Board member terms vary from one to three years, depending on the seat and members may serve for no more than six consecutive years.
