Homeless Management Information System

Homeless Management Information System

The Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is an electronic database used to hold information on characteristics and needs of homeless individuals and families. Utilization of the system gives a snapshot of Tuscaloosa's homeless population, information about services currently used, and the potential for additional services that may still be needed. HMIS also helps track chronically homeless clients and those placed in supportive housing.


  • Oversees agencies within the Continuum of Care that utilize HMIS in order to receive funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
  • Connects individuals or families that experience homelessness or are at risk for homelessness with available resources to obtain or maintain housing
