Image shows the flow of Coordinated Entry from Assessment to Housing

The CO BoS has established a Coordinated Entry System (CES) (A.K.A. Coordinated Access System (CAS), Coordinated Assessment System (CAS), Coordinated Assessment and Housing Placement System (CAHPS), Coordinated Entry System (CES), etc.)

The CO BoS CoC is using the term Coordinated Entry System (CES) for our statewide policies & procedures, though individual regions may use one of the descriptors noted above.

The CoC Program interim rule requires that Continuums of Care, “in consultation with recipients of Emergency Solutions Grant program funds within the geographic area, establish and operate either a centralized or coordinated assessment system” (24 CFR 578.7(a)(8)). 

Per HUD requirements, the Colorado Balance of State Continuum of Care implemented Coordinated Entry on January 23rd, 2018.
