HUD-VASH HOMES to HMIS Translator Tool

Date Published: November 2020



The HUD-VASH Translator Tool (HVTT) is a macro-enabled Microsoft Excel tool configured to upload the HUD-VASH HOMES-HMIS Universal Data Elements Report CSV file generated by the HOMES database and convert it to a zipped HMIS CSV file which may be used to import data to HMIS. As noted in the October 2020 message, Increasing HMIS Participation and Update on HUD-VASH Data Sharing, this tool supports importing HOMES data into HMIS using the HMIS CSV schema.
