Coordinated Entry Core Elements (HUD)

This guidebook from HUD helps CoCs as they begin planning for coordinated entry, look to improve the local system they have begun building, or check that their existing coordinated entry process complies with updated HUD requirements.

This Guidebook is designed to help CoCs:

  • Understand the core components of coordinated entry by outlining what HUD requires
  • Plan and implement a coordinated entry process appropriate to their needs, resources, and the vision of the CoC’s membership
  • Consider implementing additional elements beyond basic requirements
