The Sutter Yuba Homeless Consortium Continuum of Care has developed the following Coordinated Entry Process (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.
The primary goals of this CEP are that assistance be allocated as effectively as possible and that it be easily accessible to persons experiencing homelessness. This Coordinated Entry Process 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.
Coordinated Entry Processes help communities prioritize assistance based on vulnerability and severity of service needs to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it in a timely manner. In addition, a Coordinated Entry Process provides information about service needs and gaps to help communities plan their assistance and identify necessary resources. Accordingly, the Coordinated Entry Process described covers the entire geographic area of Sutter and Yuba Counties.
