Per HUD’s Continuum of Care (CoC) Program interim rule, each CoC is required to implement a coordinated entry system that covers the geographic area of their CoC. To assist in this effort, HUD has recently published a Coordinated Entry Community Samples Toolkit. The purpose of this toolkit is to provide CoCs with a wide array of examples of coordinated entry documents that have been created by communities from across the country. Ideally, this toolkit will allow communities to identify aspects of various coordinated entry approaches that might work well for the development and implementation of their own coordinated entry system.
These sample resources are organized by each chapter topic in HUD’s Coordinated Entry Guidebook, and present examples from large, urban communities, as well as suburban and rural CoCs. Regardless of the type of CoC that you are, where you are in your design and implementation process of coordinated entry, these community samples should provide you with additional ideas and examples that can help bolster your local coordinated entry system.
