    Effective Administration
    of the SPDAT Assessment
    Maricopa County CoC

    Presented by
    AZCEH Certified SPDAT Trainers

    Thursday, February 16th
    9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

    Maricopa Association of Governments
    302 N. 1st Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85003
    Second Floor | Ironwood Room

    Effective Administration of the SPDAT Assessment will focus on the practical application of Arizona’s adopted statewide Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (SPDAT) for coordinated entry, and how each trainee can properly and effectively administer the SPDAT within their respective program, agency, or organization. 

    The SPDAT is an evidence-informed approach to assessing an individual’s or family’s acuity which is currently in use in more than 100 communities across the U.S. and Canada, helping to improve intake processes and use existing resources to which help us serve individuals and families access programs and services which are best aligned to end their homelessness.  The tool, across multiple components, prioritizes whom to serve next and why, while concurrently identifying the areas in the person/family’s life where support is most likely necessary in order to avoid housing instability.

    Recently updated to Version 4, the SPDAT uses 15 dimensions to determine an acuity score that will help inform professional Housing First or Rapid Re-Housing practitioners about the following:

    • people who will benefit most from Housing First
    • people who will benefit most from Rapid Re-Housing
    • people who are most likely to end their own homelessness with little to no intervention on your part
    • which areas of the person’s life that can be the initial focus of attention in the case management relationship to improve housing stability
    • how individuals and families are changing over time as a result of the case management process
    Building on the practical foundations of education, training, and work experience, trainees will learn best practices in SPDAT administration, as well as the significance of assessment and prioritization to service connection and housing stability, supported by Housing-Based Case Management core concepts and techniques.
