Recipients of federal funding for homeless assistance must participate in a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). An HMIS is a computerized data collection application that facilitates the collection of information on homeless persons and stores that data in an electronic format. HMIS can be employed to:
- better understand the characteristics of homeless persons in Lake County, including their demographic characteristics;
- patterns of homelessness, and use of services;
- improve the delivery of housing and services;
- and document Lake County’s progress in reducing homelessness.
