Date Published: August 2012
Legal services providers that are recipients or subrecipients under the CoC Program are required to collect client-level data, consistent with HMIS data collection requirements. To protect clients, legal services providers may choose instead to enter data into a comparable database that complies with HMIS requirements. They may use CoC Program funds to establish and operate a comparable database. Legal services providers who do not use the CoC’s HMIS, MUST provide aggregate data to the CoC for reporting purposes.
