The Reaching Home directives here explain that, "A coordinated access system is the process by which individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or at-risk of homelessness are directed to community-level access points where trained workers use a common assessment tool to evaluate the individual or family’s depth of need, prioritize them for housing support services and then help to match them to available housing focused interventions. Quality coordinated access systems share several features, including a centralized database that collects and displays real-time data on clients and available housing and supports; clear access points of entry; common assessment; standardized protocols; and resources (for example, staff) focused on ensuring that people can connect with appropriate housing and housing supports in an efficient manner."
The deadline for Coordinated Access to be implemented in Prince George is March 23, 2023.
According to the Prince George 2019-2024 Community Plan here these are the steps that will be taken to implement a coordinated access system in PG. Targeted deadlines are delayed due to COVID 19.
