Minnesota’s HMIS is currently being transformed into a new and more powerful project: version 2.0! The end goal of the transformation is to dramatically enhance the functionality and responsiveness of the system so that Minnesota’s HMIS is in a better position to meet new demands, like coordinated assessment and the need for more and better reporting to a variety of stakeholders. All of these changes will contribute to the state’s reinvigorated efforts to end homelessness.
HMIS 2.0 planning efforts began with an assessment of Minnesota’s HMIS conducted by a Technical Assistance team assigned by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Since that report was issued a visioning session has been held, a variety of surveys and stakeholder meetings have been conducted, and an Interim Planning Team has emerged to take the lead. This page serves as a clearinghouse for information related to HMIS 2.0 planning efforts.
These documents provide stakeholders across Minnesota with an update regarding actions taking place to transform the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) and to seek feedback and suggestions to guide efforts moving forward. These updates will be sent out on a monthly basis (and as important issues/decisions arise).
