Housing for Health Partnership Policy Board

The Housing for Health Partnership Policy Board (H4HP Board) acts as the governing board for the Santa Cruz County HUD-designated Continuum of Care, known as the Housing for Health Partnership. The Board is responsible for high-level planning and decision-making. It sets overall policy direction, provides system oversight, and delegates implementation, operational, and planning responsibilities to specific Operational Committees and Working Groups.

The H4HP Board consists of 15 community leaders and stakeholders who represent different entities and constituencies with significant experience and/or resources to address the issue of homelessness. Board openings fall into three categories:

  • Jurisdictional representatives
  • Operational Committee or Working Group representatives
  • Partner system representatives

At least one member of the H4HP Board must have had lived experience of homelessness at some point in their lives.

For a detailed description of H4HP Board responsibilities and structure, view the Santa Cruz County Housing for Health Partnership Governance Charter.
