Submitting System Performance Measures in HUD’s Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX): New Resource and Upcoming Training


The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) plans to open the System Performance Measures (Sys PM) module in the HUD Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX) web portal on Thursday, June 16, 2016.

Continuums of Care (CoCs) must submit their 2016 System Performance Measures data by Monday, August 1, 2016 at 7:59:59 PM EDT in the HDX in order to be considered complete. Meeting the data submission deadline is a factor considered by HUD in the annual CoC Program Competition.

HUD has prepared two resources to assist CoCs and Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Leads in preparing to navigate the new System Performance Measures module in HDX:
  • System Performance Measures: 2016 Data Submission Guidance provides detailed information on how to submit 2016 System Performance Measures report data in HDX.
     
  • Training on the process of submitting their reports in the HDX, entitled “Submitting Your CoC’s System Performance Measures Report in HDX.” The training will be offered one time - Tuesday, June 21, 2016 at 1:00 PM EDT. Participants will learn:
     
    • How to set up or update their account in HDX for appropriate users
       
    • How to open a new report in the Sys PM Module and manually enter data from your CoC’s HMIS-based System Performance Measures report
       
    • How to upload data directly via CSV, if available from your HMIS vendor
       
    • How to review, finalize, and submit your data

Who Should Attend?


The Collaborative Applicant/Primary Contact in HDX for each CoC is responsible for ensuring that the 2016 System Performance Measures data is entered completely and accurately by the submission deadline.

This webinar, Submitting Your CoC’s System Performance Measures Report in HDX, is relevant to both CoC and HMIS Lead agency staff. However, lines are limited for these calls. Please limit registration to 2 people per CoC; we encourage CoC staff to listen together on one line (and use one registration) if possible.


Preparing for Submission


CoC Collaborative Applicants should visit the HUD Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX) to ensure that they have provided “read,” “write,” and “submit” privileges to the appropriate staff who will be entering information in the System Performance Module.

NHSDC


Youth Privacy Summit

For the past year, communities across the country have worked diligently to integrate HMIS and RHYMIS platforms.  A key challenge in integrating these systems is obtaining a youth’s consent to share information collected and ensuring that both youth and service providers fully understand what consent in this context means.

To advance the dialogue on these issues, NHSDC is partnering with the National Network for Youth to organize a Youth Privacy Summit on October 12, 2016 (the day before the NHSDC Fall Conference). We want to know how many of you would like to participate.  Please use THIS LINK to complete this brief survey and let us know, who you are, your interest in the issues, your level of experience navigating these barriers, and whether you would like to attend the Youth Privacy Summit.
We strongly encourage youth currently or formerly experiencing homelessness to attend our summit, and will make a limited number of travel stipends available to help facilitate participation.  Please CLICK HERE to apply for a youth travel stipend.
