HUD Continuum of Care FL-507’s Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is a local web-based information technology tool used to collect client-level data and data on the delivery of housing and services to individuals and families experiencing or at risk of homelessness. Our HMIS implementation is a critical element of the CoC’s initiative to end homelessness in the Orange, Osceola and Seminole region.
By Federal mandate from the Housing Urban Development (HUD), each Continuum of Care (CoC) across the United States is responsible for selecting an HMIS software solution that complies with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) data collection, management, and reporting standards. CoC FL-507 uses the software vendor, Eccovia, who maintains ClientTrack.
Administration and maintenance of the CoC’s HMIS is lead by highly trained and qualified staff ensuring an effective and responsive regional system under the direction of Homeless Services Network of Central Florida (HSN) as the Lead Agency for the HMIS in the region. The Lead Agency sets policy, performs executive functions, and provides strategic direction and oversight for HMIS.
