Community Planning Process and Training Meetings (All Free for Attendees)

FY19 Rapid Resolution Purpose/Scope:


The Rapid Resolution Community Implementation Workgroup will develop protocols or policies and/or review already existing documents (i.e., CE Policies and Procedures) that may need to be revisited with our CoC as we plan and implement Rapid Resolution based on our community goals.


Rapid Resolution is designed as a system-wide intervention and can be used for all populations, not just Veterans. All persons and households presenting for housing assistance should begin with a conversation, no assessments or scoring tool, to better understand if alternative exits exist, and if none do, the conversation then acts as a starting point for a longer-term housing plan and interaction with the System.

Goal #1:   To increase the number of veterans who found positive rapid resolution and didn’t enter shelter system/homelessness.

Goal #2:   To develop Rapid Resolution intervention practices within the PPCoC/Coordinated Entry Policies and Procedures; to include delaying VI-SPDAT utilization.

Goal #3:   To target veteran households while ensuring inclusiveness with the community for collaborative planning, training and coordination.

Goal #4:   To identify risk and protective factors of those who benefit from rapid resolution
