Updated HMIS Data Collection Forms

October 12, 2017 Comments off

The following are updated forms to facilitate HMIS data collection at Entry into your projects. The forms are broken out this year by UDEs and Program Specific Data requirements (one form for UDEs and one for Program Specific Data). All programs are required to complete the UDEs applicable to their project type in addition to their program specific data. The forms are posted as word documents so that you may edit or merge them into one document if that facilitates easier data collection. These forms are examples available to you but can be reformatted or replaced with an internal form AS LONG AS the required data for your program is being collected and entered into HMIS as outlined in the HMIS Data Standards Manual.
