Coordinated Entry and Youth FAQs


Date Published: August 2016


This frequently asked questions (FAQs) document responds to questions about the development and implementation of coordinated entry (CE) processes specific to working with runaway and homeless youth populations. HUD and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have developed the FAQs and answers in direct response to questions from the field – both Continuums of Care (CoCs) and youth-serving providers. The FAQs and answers are meant to provide guidance to communities in developing and implementing a CE process that is responsive and developmentally appropriate to the needs of youth.
