This tool is intended for Continuum of Care (CoC) administrators, HMIS System Administrators, HMIS Software Vendors, and program directors. The tool walks the user through a series of questions that help determine if a domestic violence program should be entered into an HMIS or a comparable database. Results are based on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), or Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) requirements and regulations.
