A

Victim services providers that are recipients or subrecipients under the CoC Program are required to collect client-level data consistent with HMIS data collection requirements, BUT they must not directly enter data into an HMIS. To protect clients, victim services providers must enter required client-level data into a comparable database that complies with HMIS requirements. They may use CoC Program funds to establish and operate a comparable database. Information entered into a comparable database must not be entered directly into or provided to an HMIS. Victim services providers MUST provide aggregate data to the CoC for reporting purposes.
