HMIS Capacity Building Project Award Announcement

August 14, 2019 Print ShareThis

To help end homelessness, HUD is awarding $5 million to 37 communities to improve their Continuum of Care’s (CoC) Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS), which is key for making data driven decisions about their homeless systems of care.

HMIS is used to record, analyze, and transmit client and activity data for the purposes of providing shelter, housing, and services to individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness. This funding is targeted to CoCs most in need of HMIS improvements. Activities to improve the HMIS can include any one or more of the following:

  • Consolidating HMIS software or databases with another CoC’s HMIS
     
  • Upgrading, customizing, or configuring the functionality of a CoC’s existing HMIS
     
  • Improving HMIS data quality
     
  • Increasing staff skills through trainings related to HMIS governance, data collection and data quality improvements, and data analysis to support strategic decision-making
