The Coordinated Entry Committee meets every fourth Thursday of the month from 10:30 – 11:30 am PT.

The next meeting will be held on Thursday, July 25, 2024.

The former Coordinated Entry System Policy Advisory Committee has been relaunched as the Coordinated Entry Committee.

Our Mission

At the King County Regional Homelessness Authority, we are dedicated to addressing homelessness effectively and compassionately. To meet this goal, we follow the Housing and Urban Development’s Continuum of Care Interim Rule (578.7(a)(8)), which mandates the establishment of a centralized or coordinated assessment system for individuals and families seeking housing and services.

Our Role

The Coordinated Entry Committee (CEC), as outlined in the King County Continuum of Care (CoC) Charter, oversees policies and procedures related to Coordinated Entry within King County. We identify, review, and approve policies and procedures guiding the operation of the Coordinated Entry System (CES), with the implementation managed by King County Regional Homeless Authority staff.

Key Focus Areas:

Our policies and procedures cover HUD’s core elements, including:

  1. Access: Ensuring equitable access to housing and services.
  2. Assessment: Conducting comprehensive assessments to understand each person or family’s unique needs.
  3. Prioritization: Establishing a fair system for assistance prioritization.
  4. Referral: Facilitating appropriate referrals to available resources.

Additionally, the King County CoC entrusts the CES with housing placements, making the CEC responsible for policies affecting local CES housing placements.

Community Collaboration

We work closely with service providers, local agencies, and community organizations to create a coordinated and efficient system that addresses homelessness. Our commitment to transparency and continuous improvement guides our efforts.

For more information, please explore our website and stay updated on our ongoing initiatives. Together, we can make a positive impact in our community by addressing homelessness effectively.
