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 11 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 Supportive Housing Program (SHP) may be used to attend the 2012 NHSDC Fall Conference. SHP 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.
