Choosing a Comparable Database: Aligning Data and Confidentiality, A Case Study for Domestic and Sexual Violence Coalitions
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that recipient and subrecipients receiving HUD funding “shall collect data on the use of funds awarded and persons served with this assistance in HUD’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) or other comparable database.” HUD envisioned HMIS systems as a way for communities to create data-driven solutions to ending homelessness in communities. However, Victim Service Providers (VSP) are prohibited from entering client-level data into an HMIS and instead should use a comparable database.
