A

Yes, HOPWA funds can be used to build upon or integrate with Ryan White CARE Act data systems (or other systems), provided that the system meets HMIS program specific data elements/standards and protects client confidentiality. When the systems are developed or used to facilitate data reporting, the costs are considered administrative costs and are subject to the administrative cost limit. These costs may be eligible Housing Information Services costs if the system is developed or used for purposes of better integration of community resources and tracking of clients and housing resources, as well as for client case file management.
