HUD requires every CoC to have adopted written standards that govern the provision of CoC and ESG
funded programs. This includes standards for homelessness prevention, street outreach, emergency
shelter, transitional housing, rapid re-housing, and permanent supportive housing programs. The San
Diego CoC Community Standards sets minimum system and project level expectations for CoC and ESG
programs and encourages all programs regardless of funding source to adopt and align with the
standards. The standards outline the use of best practice approaches including Housing First and
Trauma-Informed Care approaches, as well as standards for addressing racial disparities, incorporating
persons with lived experience, and utilizing the Homeless Management Information System and the
Coordinated Entry System.
