Coordinated Intake (CI) is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and is Southern Nevada’s strategy for a more efficient system to help people experiencing homelessness to access housing services. This has proven to be an effective way to assess people for multiple programs throughout the community and match them to appropriate housing in the community as it becomes available. CI allows providers to focus their time and resources on providing direct services to clients and improves the coordination of shelter and housing services. It has also been effective in improving data collection and providing accurate information on prevention, client needs and service gaps within the community.
In July 2014, Southern Nevada began utilizing the Coordinated Intake process in a pilot project for Households without Children. Southern Nevada intends is using the pilot to develop the most efficient and effective process. The knowledge gained will be used to improve the existing CI process and create Coordinated Intake processes for youth, families and survivors of domestic violence.
