HMIS NOFA Office Hours


December 12, 2018 | 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST



On November 21, 2018 HUD released the HMIS Capacity Building Project Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). Applications are due January 31, 2019. This NOFA provides $5 million in one-time funding to help communities improve their Continuum of Care's (CoC) Homeless Management Information System (HMIS).

Improvements can mean different things for different communities. It may mean:

  • Consolidating HMIS implementations to gain economies of scale and expertise
  • Modifying software to better support communities to meet HUD HMIS regulatory requirements
  • A concerted effort to increase the HMIS knowledge base among the HMIS system administration staff and CoC leadership

This Office Hour covered the latest about the NOFA from HUD staff, and answered NOFA questions participants asked during the office hours. The session also covered questions received through HUD's Ask A Question (AAQ) portal since the release of the NOFA, as well as any community questions posed during the office hours session.

A recording of this Office Hour is coming soon.
