Coordinated Entry System

Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a local information technology system is used to collect client-level data and data on the provision of housing and services to homeless individuals and families and persons at risk of homelessness. We have compiled a list of HMIS policies and procedures, HUD compliant forms, and other helpful documents.
