Built for Zero Initiative

In 2015, Madison Mayor Paul Soglin accepted the Mayors Challenge to end Veteran and Chronic homelessness. Since then, Madison/Dane County Continuum of Care (CoC) has partnered with Dane County, United Way, Veterans Administration and City of Madison in the national Built for Zero Initiative and made significant progress in reducing veteran and chronic homelessness.

Madison/Dane County Continuum of Care continues to work with Community Solutions, the leader in the national Built for Zero effort. Staff attend regular learning sessions to learn best practices from national leaders and other communities.  In addition, Community Solutions provides monthly coaching calls and as needed one-on-one assistance to the community.
