New Coordinated Entry System Policies Available For Public Comment

June 29, 2018

Draft Coordinated Entry System Policies Available For Public Comment

The policy development process for the Los Angeles Coordinated Entry System (LA County CES) is publicly accountable and includes opportunities for public comment.

The new CES Evaluation Policy is now available for public comment. The draft evaluation policy outlines the overarching purpose, approach, and frequency of evaluation for the LA County CES. Click here to review the draft evaluation policy developed by the CES Policy Development Work Group. 

Once you have reviewed the draft policy, you are invited to provide feedback for the CES Policy Council's consideration. The survey linked above will remain open until 5 pm on Friday, July 13, 2018.



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. 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, July 25, at 9:30 am. For more information about the CES Policy Council and the policy development process click here.
