Victim service provider projects do not enter client-level data into their Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). These projects must enter their data into a comparable database, and therefore will not be included in any calculation of system coverage or in any of the data for the system performance measures. Please note that this only applies to projects that are defined as “victim service providers” under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Act. Data is included from projects that serve victims of domestic violence but who are not considered “victim service providers.” For more information on “victim service providers,” please go to FAQ 2686, “How does HUD define victim service provider?”.
