Coordinated Entry Equity Demonstration: Cohort Two Expression of Interest Due September 3, 2021

This information was originally distributed via HUD.gov. HUD Exchange is redistributing the information for awareness.

HUD's Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) is embarking on a second round of the "Racial Equity Demo," a cohort of Continuums of Care (CoCs) that will work together to design more equitable assessment and prioritization processes to improve conditions and outcomes for Black, Brown, Indigenous, and people of color. We are excited to invite you to join this cohort of communities in the second iteration of the Racial Equity Demo.

For years, communities have seen how assessment tools, prioritization processes, and general practices within coordinated entry systems (CES) create racial inequities in the provision of housing and services to clients and do not prioritize clients for appropriate housing in a racially equitable way.

In partnership with Black, Brown, Indigenous, and people of color as well as people with lived expertise, 8-10 CoCs will identify system disparities through local data, agree upon focus area(s), and test racially equitable CES processes in service of significantly transforming the experience and housing stability of those disproportionately represented in our homeless response systems.

Next Steps
