HOPWA Program HMIS Manual


Date Published: July 2020


The Housing Opportunities for Persons With AIDS (HOPWA) HMIS Program Manual is intended to support data collection and reporting efforts of Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Lead Agencies and HOPWA Program grantees. This manual provides information on HMIS program setup and data collection guidance specific to the HOPWA Program.

The guidance provided in this document aligns with requirements around using HMIS as stated by the HOPWA office and refers to the data elements required for HOPWA in an HMIS as established in the FY 2020 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 HOPWA-specific requirements. This document is not a replacement for any specific program guidance, requirements, regulations, notices, and training materials on the HOPWA Program. This manual only addresses the use of HMIS for HOPWA.

This manual was updated in July 2020 to provide additional project setup guidance for HOPWA-CV funded projects.
