HMIS Privacy Policy


Privacy Statement Requirements - A requirement for homeless service organizations' participation in a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is the collection of Protected Personal Information (PPI) from Clients. Homeless service organizations must collect PPI by “lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual.”


To meet this requirement, homeless service organizations must post a Client Privacy Statement at each intake desk that explains the reasons for collecting this information. A copy of the Client Privacy Statement must be posted on each participating agency’s public website, if applicable. The posted statement refers to the Notice of Privacy Practices which should be given to all Clients. If your agency already has a privacy notice, please submit it to The Planning Council so that we may review it for compliance.
