Prepare, if funded, to participate in the HUD- mandated Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), administered by the Kings United Way. HUD funded agencies are responsible for the technological and financial responsibilities of participation in HMIS. To request more information about HMIS contact Machael Smith at: Applicants should include HMIS as a line item in their 2013 grant application.
HUD offers a Permanent Supportive Housing bonus of 15% for Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) projects. CoCs may use project funds to serve homeless and disabled individuals and/or families, and/or chronically homeless individuals. While CoCs are no longer required to use bonus funds for projects that will exclusively serve 100 percent chronically homeless individuals, CoCs are encouraged to use bonus funds for this population whenever possible, as creating new beds for the chronically homeless remains a HUD priority. As creating new permanent housing beds for disabled veterans is a HUD priority, HUD strongly encourages CoCs to use at least a portion of available bonus funds to create a project that will serve disabled veterans.
