This is detailed guide on how to get low income housing for the homeless or those who are in need affordable housing assistance. I have the actual HUD operations manuals that will show you how to best answer their intervention assessment questions, and how to score high on the housing prioritization wait list.

Under the requirements of the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing: Continuum of Care Program (HEARTH Act), the Continuum of Care has implemented a coordinated assessment system. Coordinated assessment is a powerful tool designed to ensure that homeless persons and persons at risk of homelessness are matched, as quickly as possible, with the intervention that will most efficiently and effectively end their homelessness. The Coordinated Access System described in this manual is designed to meet the requirements of the HEARTH Act, under which, at a minimum, Continuums of Care must adopt written standards that include:

(i) Policies and procedures for providing an initial housing assessment to determine the best housing and services intervention for individuals and families.

(ii) A specific policy to guide the operation of the centralized or coordinated assessment system on how its system will address the needs of individuals and families who are fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic legal issues, but who are seeking shelter or services from non-vic service providers.

(iii) Policies and procedures for evaluating individuals’ and families’ eligibility for assistance.

(iv) Policies and procedures for determining and prioritizing which eligible individuals and families will receive transitional housing assistance;

(v) Policies and procedures for determining and prioritizing which eligible individuals and families will receive rapid rehousing assistance;

(vi) Policies and procedures for determining and prioritizing which eligible individuals and families will receive permanent supportive housing assistance;

The Continuum of Care has designed the Coordinated Access System described in this manual to coordinate and strengthen access to housing for families and individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness throughout the city or County.

The Coordinated Access System institutes consistent and uniform assessment and referral processes to determine and secure the most appropriate response to each individual or family’s immediate and long-term housing needs.
