North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness


The Carolina Homeless Information Network (CHIN) is North Carolina's statewide Homeless Management Information System (HMIS).
An HMIS is a local information technology system used to collect client-level data and data on the provision of housing and services to homeless people and people at risk of homelessness. HUD requires all programs that receive Continuum of Care (CoC) or Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) funding to participate in the HMIS.
