Coordinated Intake (CI) is a collaborative process that provides families with a single point of entry for home visiting programs within a community.
Trained Coordinated Intake workers serve as a hub for home visiting, assessing families’ needs, referring them to an appropriate home visiting program, and tracking what happens to the referrals.
The governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development (OECD) is seeking communities interested in developing their own early childhood/home visiting coordinated intake system.

Illinois’ MIECHV program has been invested in coordinated intake and community systems building since the inception of MIECHV.
See below for full reports on lessons learned from MIECHV Coordinated Intake and Community Systems Development in Illinois.
The Coordinated Intake Assessment Tool (CIAT) is utilized by all Illinois MIECHV communities when recruiting participants. Non-MIECHV programs may use it as well.
