As the CES Policy Development Work Group discusses and informs CES policies, draft policies will be available for public comment. Public comment will be shared with the CES Policy Council alongside the original draft for them to review and then revise or approve. The final product will be a complete set of CES Policies and Procedures, which will encompass a range of topics organized around the core components of CES: Access, Assessment, Prioritization, and Referral (Matching). Public comment will be sought for all policies included in this complete set.
The CES Policy Council meets monthly at the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is on Wednesday, June 27, at 9:30 am. For more information about the CES Policy Council and the policy development process click here.
