FOCUS ON MEASURE 4: EMPLOYMENT AND INCOME GROWTH FOR COC FUNDED PROJECTS
Measure 4: Employment and Income Growth for CoC Funded Projects examines change in employment and non-employment cash income for adults enrolled in CoC funded safe haven (SH), transitional housing (TH), rapid rehousing (RRH), and permanent supportive housing (PSH) projects. Charlotte-Mecklenburg does not have any CoC Funded SH or TH projects thus local analysis only includes adults enrolled in RRH or PSH programs.
The measure consists of three components: change in employment or earned income during the reporting period, change in non-employment cash income (any income that is not earned), and the change in total income (both earned income and non-employment income).
These components are examined individually for project stayers and project leavers. A project stayer is an adult who was active in any of the included CoC funded projects on the last day of the federal fiscal year (in this case, 9/30/2022). For stayers, the measure compares an individual’s latest reported income to the most recent income reported prior to the latest.
A leaver is an adult who has exited from any of the included CoC funded projects anytime during the fiscal year (10/1/21 – 9/30/22) and is not active in any other included CoC funded project on the last day of the fiscal year (not a stayer). For leavers, the measure compares the person’s income at project exit to what it was at project start.
The desired outcome for System Performance Measure 4: Employment and Income Growth for CoC Funded projects is to increase the percentage of adults who increase earned or non-employment cash while enrolled in CoC funded RRH and PSH programs.
