New Resources: HMIS Capacity Building NOFA
HUD is committed to ending homelessness and believes good, reliable information is essential to that effort. Some Continuums of Care (CoCs) have an Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) infrastructure that is nimble and has the capacity to adapt to ever-changing information needs. Others struggle and would benefit from funding dedicated to improving HMIS. In November 2018 HUD published an HMIS Capacity Building Project Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) to help communities improve their CoC's HMIS.
