Program Description

  Coordinated Entry

Coordinated entry is a process developed to ensure that all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access and are quickly identified, assessed for, referred, and connected to housing and assistance based on their strengths and needs. Within a Coordinated Entry System, persons are prioritized for housing based on vulnerability using a data-driven, real-time process. Montgomery County's Coordinated Entry System embraces Housing First principles of low barrier access, consumer choice, community integration, and housing orientation.
