The Runaway and Homeless Youth (RHY) Program HMIS Manual is intended to support data collection and reporting efforts of Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Lead Agencies and RHY Program grantees. This manual provides information on HMIS program setup, data entry, data collection guidance specific to this program, and reporting guidance for projects receiving funding from the RHY Program.
The guidance provided in this document aligns with requirements around using HMIS as stated by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) and refers to the data elements required in an HMIS as established in the 2017 HMIS Data Standards. This document is not intended to replace the HMIS Data Dictionary or the HMIS Data Manual, but to complement them and relate RHY Program specific requirements. This document is not a replacement for any specific program guidance, requirements, regulations, notices, and training materials on the RHY Program. This manual only addresses the use of HMIS for RHY.
