23 Coordinated Assessment For Veterans, the goal of the coordinated assessment process is to ensure that they are quickly identified and served by SSVF programs. Only exceptions: Not eligible Prioritized for VASH Refuse SSVF assistance SSVF is effective for veterans in nearly every circumstance (income, disability, family status, criminal history).

24 Coordinated Assessment Do Do Not Identify Veterans early in the assessment process Have a basic understanding of the resources Veterans can receive Involve VA in Coordinated Assessment planning and evaluation Assess whether Veterans are appropriate for SSVF (data indicates that SSVF is worth doing for every veteran) Lose Veterans in the referral process

25 CoC Partnerships with VA Coordinated Assessment planning Sharing best practices Integrating Housing First principles throughout homelessness programs (especially shelter, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing) Coordinating housing search activities (common landlord outreach efforts, policies and procedures, case management practices)

26 Endorsing RRH Providers Prioritize providers that demonstrate: Housing First approaches and philosophy Willingness to plan and coordinate with CoC, VA, and other homelessness programs Commitment to house Veterans regardless of barriers
