Event Details


This year's theme is Increasing Capacity and Building Connections - Bridging to the Future.

The National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC) and the HUD SNAPS Office will be co-hosting the 3-day Spring Conference featuring tracks of HUD content in the morning and NHSDC sessions in the afternoon.  HUD SNAPS and partnering technical assistance providers are excited to offer content that will increase knowledge and expertise across Continuum of Cares and help level-set the field for HMIS professionals.

In recognition that a 3-day conference will mean additional hotel nights, NHSDC is commited to keeping the registration cost the same as previous years.  In order to do so, two meals during the conference (likely one breakfast and one lunch) will be on your own.  The final schedule will include which meals are on your own and we will provide a list of nearby food options at the event.  

Watch for the preliminary conference agenda in mid-February.


Use of HUD Funds

HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) is excited to collaborate with the National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC). NHSDC understands the importance of data quality and the value of using valid and reliable data for community planning and performance measurement. NHSDC has worked for over 13 years to deliver conferences that allow Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) professionals to share ideas, discuss current challenges, and best practices while developing a critical network of peer support.

This year the conference expanded from two days to three days. NHSDC will provide high-quality content through their normal solicitation process and new this year, HUD will provide an additional 30 sessions on key topics and issues that are featured in the SNAPS Data TA Strategy. As noted in the Data Strategy, HUD’s priorities for Continuums of Care (CoCs) and HMIS staff members are: 1) Improve the capacity of people setting up, operating and benefiting from data systems; 2) Data systems collect comprehensive, accurate and timely data; and 3) Continuums and stakeholders use data to improve efforts to end homelessness. HUD strongly encourages both CoC and HMIS leaders and staff to review this strategy and integrate its vision and goals into their local work.

As in past years, the NHSDC conference is HUD-approved. Therefore, HMIS funds awarded under the Continuum of Care (CoC) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Programs may be used to attend the 2019 NHSDC/HUD Spring Conference. Projects without funds designated for HMIS can use admin funds to attend this event.
