What is Coordinated Entry?
A Coordinated Entry Process (CEP) helps communities prioritize shelter and housing assistance based on vulnerability and severity of needs to ensure that people who are in the most need can receive assistance in a timely manner. In addition, a CEP provides information about service needs and gaps to help communities plan their assistance and identify necessary resources. Accordingly, the CEP described here covers the entire geographic area of Sutter and Yuba Counties.
The Sutter Yuba Homeless Consortium has developed the following CEP for the entire geographic area of Sutter and Yuba Counties to meet the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and State of California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) guidelines.
What are the Primary Goals of Coordinated Entry?
The primary goals of our CEP are that assistance be allocated as effectively as possible and that it is easily accessible to persons experiencing homelessness. Participation in the CEP is mandated for all recipients of Continuum of Care (CoC) and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funding and was developed in accordance with the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing (HEARTH) Act of 2009 and its implementing regulations.
