    Data-Driven Decision Making

    The tools in HomelessData can be used to improve operations, shape public policy, and help community stakeholders work more effectively together to respond to homelessness.

"To end homelessness, a community must know the scope of the problem, the characteristics of those who find themselves homeless, and understand what is working in their community and what is not. Solid data enables a community to work confidently towards their goals as they measure outputs, outcomes, and impacts."

US Dept of Housing & Urban Development (HUD), May 2014

  • HUD Reporting & More 

    All of the reports related to homelessness that are required by HUD for regions, and for the projects within them, can be produced in HomelessData. The built-in data quality monitoring tools help ensure the reports are accurate.
