The HMIS Data Standards have been established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and other federal partners to allow for standardized data collection on homeless clients from Continuums of Care (CoCs) across the county. The collection of these data elements are required to meet HMIS participation and reporting requirements from HUD and other federal partners. Periodically, new data elements are introduced to address gaps with current data collection.


The data elements included in this article have been added or edited under the FY2022 HMIS Data Standards, and will be implemented in HMIS as of October 1st, 2021. The data elements included in this article are required for clients served using RHY funds. Please review each data element for specific information regarding data collection requirements. For additional information on these data elements please review the FY2022 HMIS Data Standards Manual.
