New Coordinated Entry System Policies Available For Public Comment

The policy development process for the Los Angeles Coordinated Entry System (LA CES) is publicly accountable and includes opportunities for public comment.

  This month, access-related policies are available for public comment. Click here to review them. 

Once you have reviewed them, you are invited to provide feedback for the CES Policy Council's consideration. The  survey on LAHSA's website linked above will remain open until 5:00 pm on September 28, 2017. 


Each month, a new set of draft policies will be available for public comment. Public comment will be shared with the CES Policy Council alongside the original draft for them to review and then revise or approve. The final product will be a complete set of CES Policies and Procedures, which will encompass a range of topics organized around the core components of CES: Access, Assessment, Prioritization, and Referral. Public comment will be sought for all policies included in this complete set.

 The CES Policy Council meets monthly at the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, and meetings are open to the public. The next meeting is on October 4 at  9:30 am. For more information about the CES Policy Council and the policy development process, click here
