Coordinated Entry

HUD mandates that all communities who receive federal funds through the Continuum of Care (CoC) Competition must operate and maintain a successful Coordinated Entry System. This system allows CoC’s to prioritize those most vulnerable and/or in-need for the limited services and housing program openings through an assessment process, engagement with outreach workers and housing staff, and case conferencing. Coordinated Entry also allows for coordinated collaboration with key service providers within the community, even if they are not federally funded through the CoC competition, to ensure that clients are able to access programs and services in a timely and organized manner. 

Please note: All training materials and forms on this page are for use by Coordinated Entry staff or those operating within the CoC. If you are currently experiencing homelessness, please visit our Memphis Homeless Options Tool for information on resources and programs that can assist within the community.
