Homeless Management Information System database

HMIS

Homeless Management Information System

A Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is an invaluable tool for communities and HUD to develop better information on the nature of homelessness, the number of people experiencing homelessness, the existing patterns in housing programs and services, and the effectiveness of programs and services in addressing homelessness. An HMIS must be used by the CoC and all recipients of CoC and ESG program funds to meet HUDS’s data collection, management, and reporting standards. Recipients and subrecipients are required to collect data on individual clients and the provision of housing and services to homeless individuals and families, and persons at risk of homelessness.
