Title: Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing: Homeless Management Information System (FR-5475) 

This rule provides for the establishment of regulations for Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS), the use of which is required by the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act), enacted into law on May 20, 2009. In addition to consolidating three existing homeless assistance programs administered by HUD under the McKinney-Vento Act into the Continuum of Care program and creating the new Emergency Solutions Grant Program and the Rural Housing Stability Program, the Act codified into law certain data collection requirements integral to HMIS. HMIS is the current information technology system that HUD and its recipients use for existing homeless assistance programs. While HMIS has been in use for several years, this rule establishes the regulatory framework for administration and collection of data under HMIS.
