The National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC) is a collaborative organization that understands the importance of data quality and the value of using valid and reliable data for community planning and performance measurement. NHSDC has worked for over 12 years to deliver conferences that allow Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) professionals to discuss current challenges and best practices while developing a critical network of peer support.
As in past years, the NHSDC conference is a HUD approved conference. Therefore, HMIS funds awarded under the Continuum of Care (CoC) program may be used to attend the 2013 NHSDC Fall Conference. Funds included in the Training and Technical Assistance line of the HMIS budget may be used for costs associated with attendance at training sessions that are qualified-and pre-approved by HUD Headquarters, such as this NHSDC conference. Projects without funds designated for HMIS do not have an HMIS budget, and, therefore, are not eligible to use supportive service funds to attend this event.
