Mandatory BoS KYHMIS Data Clean-Up Deadline and Webinar
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) System Performance Measures include a set of seven measures that each Continuum of Care (CoC) must submit to HUD annually. The set includes: total number of people experiencing homelessness, length of time people spend experiencing homelessness, percentage of people who leave homelessness to permanent housing, number of people who return to homelessness, and more.

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) must submit the Kentucky Balance of State (KY BoS) CoC data in May. 

All housing projects in the Kentucky Homeless Management Information System (KYHMIS) are required to be included in system performance measures, regardless of funding. At this time, SSO, PREV, and VSPs will not have to submit data for system performance measures.

Agencies must complete data quality and completeness clean-up using the System Performance Measures Data Clean-Up Guide  and submit an accurate 640 report by Wednesday, May 10, 2017 to the  HCA Help Desk with the subject line '640 Report'.

New this year is a Data Quality Tab that must be submitted with the System Performance Measures. This tab is where KHC will have to submit data for the BoS for multiple project types for four separate years (FY13-FY16) to give HUD an overview of where our CoC's data quality is in HMIS.
