2014 HMIS Data Standards – New Resources Published
The following new resources have been published on the HMIS Guides and Tools page of the HUD Exchange:
HMIS Project Descriptor Data Elements Manual - Project descriptor data elements are information about projects in the HMIS, not clients. This manual is intended to serve as a reference and provide basic guidance on HMIS Project Descriptor Data Elements (PDDEs) for CoCs, HMIS Lead Agencies, HMIS System Administrators, and HMIS users.
HMIS Data Standards Community Training - This PowerPoint is intended for CoCs to use when training their communities and HMIS users on the new data standards. It is a high-level look at the changes in the 2014 data standards and provides the context in which the changes were made.
2014 HMIS Data Standards Mapping - This spreadsheet shows the changes made to the Universal and Program Specific data elements in the 2014 HMIS Data Standards. It also provides a history of each element and response from 2004, 2010, and 2014.
