LAHSA Accepting Nominations To CES Policy Council From CES Non-Lead Service Providers

May 31, 2017 | June 06, 2017

LAHSA is seeking nominations from service providers whose agencies participate in the Coordinated Entry System (CES), but who do not serve as the SPA-level lead, to hold three slots on the CES Policy Council. 

The CES Policy Council will be a group of service providers across all populations, County health agencies, City and County housing authorities, and other stakeholders primarily responsible for approving policy related to the Coordinated Entry System. The CES Policy Council will review and approve policies and procedures developed by the CES Policy Development Work Group prior to implementation. Group members will be asked to participate in monthly meetings from June 2017 – November 2017, beginning with a kickoff meeting to be held on June 22 from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm. 

Nominations for the 3 CES non-lead service providers are due at 5:00 pm on June 7, 2017. The application/nomination form is available here: Nomination Form. The slate of candidates will be distributed to the Regional Homeless Advisory Council (RHAC) for online voting ending on June 14, 2017 at 5:00 pm.

The composition of the council was approved at the May 17, 2017 RHAC meeting. The representatives and their nominating body are listed below:
