Date Published: February 2015


This policy brief summarizes HUD’s views on goals for the 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.

View the Coordinated Entry and HMIS FAQs, the Coordinated Entry and Victim Service Providers FAQs, and the Coordinated Entry and Youth FAQs to find out more information on how the coordinated entry process relates to Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS), victim services providers, and youth for CoCs.
