HUD AAQ #90167: HMIS Data Entry for PSH Resident from Another PSH Project
Question Related To: Homeless Management Information Systems
Question ID: 90167
Question Subject: HMIS Data Entry for PSH Resident from Another PSH Project
If a client moves directly from PSH Project A to PSH Project B, where the agencies are different, but the CoC is the same, would the correct response to the "Residence Prior to Project Entry" be "Permanent Housing for Formerly Homeless Persons (HUD)?" I assume PSH Provider B would also have to document why this client entered from a non-homeless situation, as well. Thank you.
Thanks for your question, Jason. You are correct--if a client goes from any PSH project to a new one, 3.917 Type of Residence should be recorded as 'Permanent housing for formerly homeless persons (such as: a CoC project; HUD legacy programs; or HOPWA PH).' As part of PSH Provider B's recordkeeping requirements, they should document why the person entered from PSH.
