Overview

The Citywide Oversight Committee (COC) promotes cross-system coordination and collaboration between and among New York State (NYS) and New York City (NYC) child-serving agencies, Borough Based Councils, family members and youth for the purpose of improving the social and emotional well being of children and youth through implementation of the New York State Children’s Plan within New York City’s system of care.  Issues that cannot be resolved at the borough levels are brought to the COC for discussion and resolution or referral to the appropriate agency/forum for further consideration. For more information on the COC, please view the NYC CCSI By-Laws. The committee typically meets from 3:00-5:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of alternating months.
