C. Inform local planning – Information gathered through CE will guide community decision making around homeless assistance planning.
D. *Leverage local attributes and capacity – Implementation with fidelity by local stakeholders that reflect community attributes and overall context, services and providers, will assist and define items each LHCC is asked to develop as an addendum in addition to these policies and procedures.
