Advisory Groups

Effective advisory groups of various types serve to provide expertise, guidance, and practical support informing the work of the Governance Board. Such groups provide multiple opportunities for community engagement, collaboration on and contribution to those issues and concerns facing the CoC. For decisions about new issues or actions not readily assignable to an existing advisory group, the Board may make a decision after soliciting and considering recommendations from an existing advisory group, or the Board will form a new work group, task force, or action committee to consider the issue and provide recommendations. The Board will ensure that all CoC members receive an invitation to join the new advisory group or to participate on a specific advisory committee for the purpose of providing recommendations regarding the issue.

Advisory Committees

  • The RTFH established Advisory Committees (AC) to provide advice on its primary activities, key issues or community initiatives. The following ACs are established as Standing ACs incorporating members of the FM and may only be disbanded by a change to the Charter.


  • Structure: Each advisory committee will define and staff the subcommittees as appropriate to the work that needs to be completed.
  • Composition: is based upon the needs of the advisory committee and the subject-matter experts needed to facilitate discussion and outcome achievement.

Learning Collaboratives

  • Purpose: Facilitate sharing of provider expertise and intervention strategies as needed and provide feedback and recommendations to formal Board decision-making advisory groups.
  • Structure: Each Learning Collaborative’s structure and operations is self-determined.
  • Composition: is primarily drawn from the full membership and is comprised of subject-matter experts and key stakeholders interested in that Learning Collaborative’s area of focus.

Intergovernmental Council

  • In order to engage key government representatives in the effort to end homelessness, RTFH will form an Intergovernmental Council (IC). The purpose of the IC will be to promote and coordinate local government activities to assist homeless persons. The IC will consist of current public officials representing various levels of government such as cities, county, state, and federal. The positions of Chairperson and Vice Chairperson will be elected and rotate among the represented agencies on an annual basis.
  • The first Homelessness Intergovernmental Roundtable was held on February 28th, 2019.

Work Groups/Task Forces

  • Periodically, RTFH needs to complete specific, time limited tasks in order to comply with regulatory demands or to advance its goals and objectives. At the request of the Board, a temporary Task Group or Ad Hoc Committee may be formed to complete the identified task. These groups perform specific functions associated with completion of the task and are guided by and report to one of the established RTFH groups which may include the Board or an AC.
