Effective Administration of the SPDAT Assessment for Single Adults: Maricopa Regional Continuum of Care (MRCOC) will focus on the practical application of MRCOC's adopted coordinated assessment, Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (SPDAT), and how each trainee can properly and effectively administer the SPDAT within their respective program, agency, or organization. 

What is the SPDAT?

The SPDAT is an evidence-informed approach to assessing an individual’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 help serve individuals in gaining access to programs and services which are best aligned to end their homelessness. The assessment tool, across multiple components, prioritizes whom to serve next and why, while concurrently identifying the areas in the person's life where support is most likely necessary in order to maintain housing stability.

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

  • Single adults who will benefit most from Housing First
  • Single adults who will benefit most from Rapid Re-Housing
  • Single adults 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 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 for single adults, 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.
