New Interim Guidance Available For Public Comment

July 25, 2018

Draft Interim Guidance Available for Public Comment Through August 8, 2018

The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) is developing Interim Guidance on an ongoing basis to ensure quality, consistency, fairness, and efficiency in the delivery of homeless services throughout the Los Angeles County Coordinated Entry System (LA County CES), and to test new practices before developing formal policy. To learn more about the CES Interim Guidance process, please CLICK HERE.

The latest piece of draft Interim Guidance, Identifying Points of Contact for CES Participants to be Matched to Resources, is now available for public comment. This guidance improves the efficiency of the LA County CES by requiring that Points of Contact be identified for every CES participant currently engaged by staff at a CES Participating Agency. Establishing Points of Contact within each electronic participant record will ensure that a CES participant can be reached in the event of a potential match to a housing resource.

LAHSA welcomes feedback on the draft Identifying Points of Contact for CES Participants to be Matched to Resources Interim Guidance. The Interim Guidance is available for review HERE. Public comment will remain open through August 8, 2018 at 5:00 pm PST. Please CLICK HERE to provide written feedback.
