Beginning in FY2015, all Runaway and Homeless Youth Program grantees are required to use HMIS, operated by their local U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-funded Continuum of Care, or CoC, for all data reporting to the Family & Youth Services Bureau. (In order to make this expansion clear for the purpose of this document, FYSB refers to the system as RHY-HMIS.) Runaway and Homeless Youth Program grantees will create an export data file through RHY-HMIS and submit their data to FYSB twice a year. All RHY grantees are expected to be using RHY-HMIS by April 15, 2015.
