Are separate projects required in a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for single Rapid Re-Housing (RRH) projects funded by two different ESG grants, for example one from the city and one from the State?

Yes. Projects that receive ESG funding from multiple ESG recipients must create separate projects in their HMIS for each funding source (e.g., ESG City-funded RRH and ESG State- funded RRH) to distinguish program participants for reporting purposes.

HUD recommends that recipients and subrecipients:

  1. Work together to design projects that use funds from one ESG recipient to support 100 percent of the ESG costs for each household; and
  2. Not provide ESG assistance to the same household with two different funding sources, if it can be avoided (e.g., providing 2 months of ESG city-funded rental assistance followed by 3 months of ESG State-funded rental assistance) – but rather fully fund assistance for fewer program participants with one source of ESG funding, and assist other program participants with the second source of ESG funding.
