CES Written Standards
In accordance with Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (24 CFR) governing the Continuum of Care Program (24 CFR 578) and the Emergency Solutions Grants Program (24 CFR 576) as well as HUD’s final rule on defining chronically homeless and homeless (24 CFR 91) and HUD Notice CPD-14- 012 on prioritizing persons experiencing chronic homelessness and other vulnerable homeless persons in permanent supportive housing, the City of Pasadena (City) and the Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness (Pasadena CoC) have developed the Coordinated Entry System (CES) written standards. All projects that receive Pasadena Continuum of Care (CoC) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) funding are required to participate in the CES system, and are therefore subject to complying with these basic minimum standards.
The goal of these standards is to synthesize key elements of the HUD regulations with the processes and priorities of the Pasadena CoC and ensure that the CES system is administered fairly and methodically. The City and the Pasadena Partnership will continue to build upon and refine this document.
