HMIS Data Standards

Overview

This interactive tool is designed for CoCs, HMIS Lead Agencies, HMIS System Administrators, HMIS Users, and HMIS Software Providers to help them understand the data elements that are required in an HMIS to meet participation and reporting requirements established by HUD and other federal partners at VA and HHS.

HMIS data standards have been established by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to allow for standardization data collection on homeless individuals and families across systems.
