Continuum of Care. During this report period, DHS created a set of eight strategies to build the state’s continuum of care, along with a series of activities to implement each of the strategies. Some of these strategies are new, some began at the end of the last period and others are a continuation, at a more focused level, of ongoing efforts, such as expanding Oklahoma’s TFC placements. The strategies include: • Strategy 1: Develop a process for systematic evaluation and planning for children and youth with complex needs to increase supports and service array for children and families. • Strategy 2: Reduce the number of children and youth 13 and under in congregate and shelter care. • Strategy 3: Reduce the length of time children and youth are placed in congregate and shelter care. • Strategy 4: Expand and enhance the current Therapeutic Xxxxxx Care (TFC) program. • Strategy 5: Develop an Enhanced Xxxxxx Care program with additional supports and services to serve children with complex needs in family-based settings. o Phase 1: Pilot the program to serve children who are currently awaiting higher level treatment. o Phase 2: Develop Enhanced Xxxxxx Care Program. • Strategy 6: Expand and enhance current Specialized Xxxxxx Care Program (DDS). • Strategy 7: Create an avenue for information sharing and ongoing education with front line staff, supervisors, district directors, field managers and other key stakeholders, increasing knowledge about placement and treatment factors contributing to negative childhood experiences.

Continuum of Care. The interim rule simplifies the statutory language in order to make the Continuum of Care planning process clear. HUD highlights that its definition of collaborative applicant does not track the statutory definition, which is found in section 401 of the XxXxxxxx-Xxxxx Act. As will be discussed in further detail later in this preamble, the concept of collaborative applicant, its duties and functions, as provided in the statute, is provided for in this rule. However, HUD uses the term Continuum of Care to refer to the organizations that carry out the duties and responsibilities assigned to the collaborative applicant, with the exception of applying to HUD for grant funds. The clarification is necessary in this rule because Continuums of Care are not required to be legal entities, but HUD can enter into contractual agreements with legal entities only. Continuum of Care and Continuum are defined to mean the group that is organized to carry out the responsibilities required under this part and that is composed of representatives of organizations including nonprofit homeless providers, victim service providers, faith-based organizations, governments, businesses, advocates, public housing agencies, school districts, social service providers, mental health agencies, hospitals, universities, affordable housing developers, law enforcement, organizations that serve homeless and formerly homeless veterans, and homeless and formerly homeless persons. These organizations consist of the relevant parties in the geographic area. Continuums are expected to include representation to the extent that the type of organization exists within the geographic area that the Continuum represents and is available to participate in the Continuum. For example, if a Continuum of Care did not have a university within its geographic boundaries, then HUD would not expect the Continuum to have representation from a university within the Continuum. These organizations carry out the responsibilities and duties established under Subpart B of this interim rule. The Continuum of Care, as noted above, carries out the statutory duties and responsibilities of a collaborative applicant. HUD established the Continuum of Care in 1995. Local grantees and stakeholders are familiar with the Continuum of Care as the coordinating body for homeless services and homelessness prevention activities across the geographic area. Consequently, HUD is maintaining the Continuum of Care terminology, and the rule provid...
