2.1. What Region am I in?

Ohio is divided by HUD into 9 Continua of Care (CoCs). Eight of the nine CoCs are "Entitlement" CoCs and basically contain the more populated counties in Ohio: Franklin (Columbus), Hamilton (Cincinnati), Montgomery (Dayton), Mahoning (Youngstown), Stark (Canton), Summit (Akron), Cuyahoga (Cleveland), and Lucas (Toledo). The ninth CoC is called the Ohio Balance of State CoC, which includes the rest of the 80 counties in Ohio.

Given that the Ohio Balance of State is so large, it is divided further into 17 Homeless Planning Regions. Below is the map published by Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) in 2017. Find your County to find which Homeless Planning Region you are in. You can also download the map below in .pdf format.
