HUD Releases a Policy Brief on Coordinated Entry

Last week, HUD posted the Coordinated Entry Policy Brief. An effective coordinated entry process is a critical component to any community’s efforts to meet the goals of Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. This policy brief describes HUD’s views of the characteristics of an effective coordinated entry process. This brief does not establish requirements for Continuums of Care (CoCs), but rather is meant to inform local efforts to further develop CoCs’ coordinated entry processes.

HUD has previously provided guidance regarding prioritization for permanent supportive housing (PSH) in Notice CPD-014-12: Notice on Prioritizing Persons Experiencing Chronic Homelessness in Permanent Supportive Housing and Recordkeeping Requirements for Documenting Chronic Homeless Status. This brief builds upon that Notice and provides guidance for using coordinated entry to prioritize assistance across all types of assistance within the CoC.

In addition to the policy brief, HUD has also posted Coordinated Entry and HMIS FAQs.

If you have questions regarding this Notice, please submit your questions to the HUD Exchange Ask A Question (AAQ) portal. To submit a question to the AAQ portal, select “CoC Program” from the “My question is related to” drop down list on Step 2 of the question submission process.
