VI-SPDAT Assessment

(Vulnerability Index – Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool)

Information from the VI-SPDAT assessment is placed in the Coordinated Entry System data base. When local organizations have program openings, they often ask CES staff to look in that data base for clients who might be a good match for their services.

  • The VI-SPDAT assessment is NOT an emergency solution
  • Completing a VI-SPDAT assessment is NOT a guarantee of housing
  • Completing a VI-SPDAT assessment DOES NOT put you on the waiting list for Section 8 or HUD Housing
