HUD Data Standards
Much of the data collect for HMIS programs comes from the HUD Data Standards. The latest revision of these standards currently in use comes from March 2010.

Client consent
The Client Notice and Consent is used to ensure that all clients fully understand HMIS, why their personal information is being collected, and make an informed decision as to what identifying information will be entered into the system. The Release of Information allows client’s to choose if other agencies are able to access their information in HMIS, and if so, which agencies. These forms are designed to meet legal requirements and to provide clear information to the clients, seek legal counsel before modifying them in any way.
