North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness


The U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is sponsoring two national training conferences in September for Continuum of Care (CoC) representatives, Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) administrators, and ESG and HPRP grantees. The conference program will be offered in two different cities, Denver, Colorado and Atlanta, Georgia. Each conference will focus on HMIS implementation, Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) participation, and the important changes made to HUD’s McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Programs by the 2009 HEARTH Act. Attendees will learn how the HEARTH Act amendments may affect local planning and project operations going forward and hear about steps to be taken in preparation for transitioning to new requirements.
The conferences will include a mix of breakout sessions and workshops designed to provide attendees with the information and tools they need to begin planning for changes to local and state programs, planning and project operation. The program also offers attendees an important opportunity to learn about requirements for electronic reporting on homeless programs in a hands-on environment. Among the topics to be covered are:
* Transition issues and building a foundation for success;
* Using HMIS Data for CoC planning;
* System planning and redesign;
* HPRP and system transformation;
* AHAR for new and experienced communities; and
* Strategies for implementing rural programs.

Who should attend the training conferences
HUD strongly encourages HMIS administrators and CoC leaders to attend as well as ESG and HPRP grantees. HUD reserves the right to limit the number of attendees per CoC and/or HMIS implementing jurisdiction due to space limitations.
