Coordinated Entry

Effective 3.26.2020 Coordinated Entry access points are available by phone only to minimize the possibility of congestion in a shared space and to encourage social distancing. Please call one of the access points below.

Cowlitz County is required to have a Coordinated Entry system that provides a streamlined process to access, assess, and refer to specific housing programs in the community. The list below identifies the participating programs that are required to accept referrals only through Coordinated Entry. Coordinated Entry is the first step to determine eligibility for these participating housing programs:

  • Housing Opportunities of Southwest Washington Veteran Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) Program
  • Lower Columbia CAP’s Rapid Rehousing Program (HEN/ABD eligible)
  • Lower Columbia CAP’s Young Adult Housing Program
  • Lower Columbia CAP’s Low Barrier Housing Project
  • Lower Columbia CAP’s Home Again Transitional Housing/Rapid Rehousing Program (DV Project)

Participating programs have limited availability and program openings are often contingent upon capacity and/or availability of funds. Coordinated Entry may also provide information on a variety of other housing programs or resources in our community and can help problem solve and connect to other mainstream services.
