1 Coordinated Assessment ROANOKE COC Meeting Council Of Community Services August 20, 2013

2 2 Why Coordinated Assessment?  Coordinated assessment is a powerful tool for improving system-wide entry, assessment, and referral processes.  Process components include: Access point(s) – virtual or specific site location Screening and assessment process (prevent/divert/admit) Information about available services and programs Real-time knowledge about program inventory and capacity Referral and waitlist management Enrollment/admission decision criteria

3 3 Why Coordinated Assessment? Centralized or Coordinated Assessment System Access HUD is requiring that all CoCs establish and operate a centralized or coordinated assessment system to conduct an initial, comprehensive assessment of the housing and services needs for all people entering the homeless assistance system. HUD notes that these systems should be designed in response to local needs and conditions and should include use of a locally-designed, common assessment tool. CoCs are required under the interim regulation to develop a specific policy on how the coordinated assessment system will address the needs of people fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence. 3

4 4 Why Coordinated Assessment? In addition, CoCs will be required to develop and follow written standards for how they plan to administer assistance through coordinated assessment. CoCs must develop standards for providing assistance including: Evaluating eligibility for assistance; Prioritizing who receives transitional housing; Prioritizing who receives rapid re-housing; Determining what percentage or amount of rent people receiving rapid re-housing must pay; Prioritizing people for permanent supportive housing; and If designated as an HPC, prioritizing who receives homelessness prevention assistance. 4
