About Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)

In compliance with the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Continuum of Care, DHHS is the implementing organization for HMIS. HMIS is a local information technology system used to collect client-level data and data on the provision of housing and services to homeless individuals, families, and persons at risk of homelessness. It incorporates a set of policies and procedures around client confidentiality/privacy rights, data collection, computer entry, and reporting. HMIS is designed to aggregate client-level data to generate unduplicated counts of clients served in the community. Each Continuum of Care is responsible for selecting an HMIS software solution that complies with HUD's data collection, management, and reporting standards.
