VT Balance of State Coordinated Entry - HMIS Resources

Coordinated entry is an important process through which people experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness can access the crisis response system in a streamlined way, have their strengths and needs quickly assessed, and quickly connect to appropriate, tailored housing and mainstream services within the community or designated region. 

Standardized assessment tools and practices used within local coordinated assessment processes take into account the unique needs of children and their families as well as youth. When possible, the assessment provides the ability for households to gain access to the best options to address their needs, incorporating participants’ choice, rather than being evaluated for a single program within the system. The most intensive interventions are prioritized for those with the highest needs.

HUD’s primary goals for coordinated entry processes are: 

  1. Assistance will be allocated as effectively as possible.
  2. Assistance is easily accessible no matter where or how people present.
