The U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires homeless care facilities to collect and submit data on their clients in order for them to receive grant funding. However, the government does not provide a single system-wide Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) data solution. Homeless care facilities are required to purchase a HMIS database system from private companies which results in HMIS systems being closed databases and unconnected nationwide or community-wide. If a single unified HMIS system was created and used by all care facilities nationwide, it would alleviate duplication of case files, inaccuracies in national statistics, and create an ecosystem that enables those seeking shelter to find care more efficiently.
