Requirements for Coordinated Entry Systems Webinar


March 22, 2017 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT



HUD held a series of webinars for Continuums of Care (CoCs) and recipients of CoC Program and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program funding to educate participants about the components of the Notice Establishing Additional Requirements for Continuum of Care Centralized or Coordinated Assessment System. This webinar connects the dots across all of HUD's Coordinated Entry requirements and recommendations, and helps communities understand the requirements and what steps a community should consider to evaluate and ensure compliance. The webinar introduces viewers to HUD's Technical Assistance (TA) materials to aid their compliance efforts, including a Coordinated Entry Process Self-Assessment.

Every CoC must establish or update its coordinated entry process in accordance with the requirements of 24 CFR 578.7(a)(8) and the Notice by January 23, 2018. Each CoC and each ESG recipient operating within the CoC's geographic area must also work together to ensure the CoC's coordinated entry process allows for coordinated screening, assessment and referrals for ESG projects. CoCs throughout the country are designing and implementing coordinated entry processes to ensure that their housing crisis response systems end current homelessness for all households and ensure that future homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring. Recognizing that CoCs are in various stages of planning and implementation, this webinar is designed to help CoCs understand what is required, how to review their progress to date, and how to begin to identify areas that are completed or need further development. This includes staff and programs working on coordinated entry design and implementation, as well as projects required to participate in coordinated process.
