System Performance Measures Data Now Available
Data is a critical tool for driving change in communities. Continuums of Care (CoCs) are currently in the process of submitting their FY 2017 system performance measures – with a due date of May 31, 2018. HUD is happy to announce that it has released the CoC-level system performance measures data since FY 2015. This data is from the initial submissions and while the data may have some issues as CoCs worked through initial submissions, it is invaluable for getting a picture of what is going on across the country. HUD has added a few items to help CoCs create some points of comparison, including information about where CoCs are, their relative size, and how much funding they receive. This is just one more resource communities can look to as they strive to use data to make informed decisions about how to better end homelessness.
