HUD recently released the second webinar in a series of three webinars to assist Continuums of Care (CoCs) and Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Lead Agencies understand how HMIS can be used to assist in identifying people who are experiencing chronic homelessness. The Reporting on Chronic Homelessness webinar describes how HMIS records are used to determine chronic homeless status. The final webinar will be released by HUD in the coming weeks.

Each brief video recording will provide detailed information about one of the following topics:

• Newly Released: Reporting on Chronic Homelessness looks at self-reported data and enrollment histories for each client to generate reports on the people experiencing chronic homelessness in your CoC. This webinar will describe how information from an HMIS record is used to determine chronic homeless status and how those results can be supplemented for local planning purposes.

• Previously Released: Capturing information about a client’s living situation in HMIS needed to calculate their chronic homeless status. Every HMIS-participating project has to record clients’ living situation and disability status in HMIS at project entry based on information the client shares. This webinar assists HMIS Lead agencies and users understand how to navigate the relevant data elements in HMIS.

• Coming Soon: Using HMIS to document a client’s chronic homeless status for eligibility purposes. This is achieved by looking at a client’s entries and exits in HMIS, rather than the self-reported data collected at each project entry. This webinar will provide information to HMIS Lead agencies and users about the types of information needed from a client’s HMIS record to serve as documentation of their time on the streets, in an emergency shelter, or in a safe haven.
