Coordinated Entry is a consistent, community wide intake process to match people experiencing homelessness to community resources that are the best fit for their situation. In the State of Nevada’s Coordinated Entry system, all homeless individuals and families will complete a standard assessment survey that considers the household’s situation and identifies the best type of housing intervention to address their situation. Permanent housing programs, including permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing, will fill spaces in their programs from a community queue of eligible households generated from the standard assessment. This coordinated process will reduce the need for people to traverse the community seeking assistance at every provider separately.
Coordinated Entry is fully integrated into the Clarity CMIS/HMIS. The assessment is part of the standard CMIS/HMIS intake and will be entered directly into HMIS and referrals to permanent housing will be made through the HMIS software.
