These resources can assist CoCs and projects with implementing Housing First into their homeless crisis response system. Regardless of project type, the Housing First approach can be utilized to reduce barriers to project access and to maintain participation.

This tool assists CoCs in documenting and measuring progress on how closely their projects align to the Housing First model based on HUD’s Housing First best practice standards. Local CoC standards should be taken into account during completion as well.
