e R er/ lp t l e e Sh g H sin u Ho HEARTH Coordinated Assessment 578.7 Responsibilities of the Continuum of Care. (a) Operate the Continuum of Care. The Continuum of Care must: (8) In consultation with recipients of Emergency Solutions Grants program funds within the geographic area, establish and operate either a centralized or coordinated assessment system that provides an initial, comprehensive assessment of the needs of individuals and
families for housing and services. The Continuum must develop a specific policy to guide the operation of the centralized or coordinated assessment system on how its system will address the needs of individuals and families who are fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, or stalking, but who are seeking shelter or services from non-victim service providers. This system must comply with any requirements established by HUD by Notice. HEARTH - Coordinated Assessment From the HUD Interim Rule: Centralized or coordinated assessment system is defined to mean a centralized or coordinated process designed to coordinate program participant intake, assessment, and provision of referrals. A centralized or coordinated assessment system: covers the geographic area, 2. is easily accessed by individuals and families seeking housing or services, 3. is well advertised, and 4. includes a comprehensive and standardized assessment tool. 1.

From Ending Family Homelessness Strategic Plan 2020 We agree to commonly fund and support services to families seeking shelter, with a strong focus on resolving and diverting as many families as possible whenever it is safe and appropriate to do so. Diversion includes looking at the current circumstance of the family from wherever they are connecting from across the County and professionally, sensitively, and patiently attempting to solve their housing instability without ever requiring shelter admission.
