HMIS Program-Specific Data Manuals Available on the HUD Exchange for ESG, CoC, PATH, and RHY Programs
HUD and its Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) Federal partners from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Administration for Children and Families, Family and Youth Services Bureau of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) have updated some of the HMIS Program-Specific Data Manuals posted to the HUD Exchange including:
- Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program HMIS Manual
- Continuum of Care (CoC) Program HMIS Manual
- Projects for Assistance in Transition from Homelessness (PATH) Program HMIS Manual
- Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program HMIS Manual
These program-specific manuals are companion documents to the HMIS Data Dictionary and Data Standards Manuals. They do not change information about data collection or add any new elements to be collected; rather, they provide primary information and guidance for HMIS System Administrators on project set-up in the HMIS system and for organizations receiving funding from these Federal grant programs on the data collection requirements, definitions, and information that grant recipients must collect for program reporting purposes. In addition to posting the manuals to the HUD Exchange, Federal partners will also post them on their program websites.
