The counties in the Southwestern RHAB are Armstrong, Butler, Fayette, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson,Washington, and Westmoreland.

The duties of the RHABs include:

  • Functioning as an intermediary with the Local Housing Options Teams (LHOTs) and local housing coalitions to bring local issues to the forefront of the full Continuum;
  • Conducting a minimum of four meetings per year, with additional meetings if needed;
  • Distributing the CoCs public invitation for members;
  • Providing input on the design and implementation of a plan to address homelessness (CoC Plan);
  • Providing input for the prioritization of the region’s needs, including recommendations to the CoC Board for CoC funding and to state and local government ESG recipients for allocation ESG funds;
