Federal Partner Participation

The final Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) Data Standards Manual represents the collective work of HUD, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Updating the HMIS Data Standards to accommodate use by other federal agencies was undertaken in part to support goals identified in Opening Doors: the Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. Each link below will take you to a page containing resources and materials to assist System Administrators, Continuum of Care (CoC) administrators, and end users in following the HMIS requirements of HUD and other federal partners. Federal partner agencies should complete these forms to request technical services related to the HMIS Data Standards, including requesting data standards changes and reporting specifications.
