Homelessness Coordinated Access System
Coordinated Access System
The City of Greater Sudbury Coordinated Access System consists of a network of agencies who work together to support people experiencing homelessness, to find and maintain permanent housing. People who are experiencing homelessness are prioritized for supports and services based on their level of need.
The community has created a Coordinated Access System Process Guide (PDF), which outlines processes and policies of the Coordinated Access System.
If you have any questions about the Coordinated Access System, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

By-Name Priority List
A By-Name Priority List is a key component to the Coordinated Access System. The By-Name Priority List is a real-time list of people experiencing homelessness in our community who have consented to be added to the list and is used to prioritize persons and families based on their level need using a standardized process and common assessment tools.
