Welcome to KC Metro HMIS!

HMIS is essential to coordinate services, evaluate performance, ensure accountability in the use of public funds, and inform public policy. Ultimately, the HMIS serves as the foundation for all planning to prevent, reduce, and eliminate homelessness.

Background

The two Continuum of Care organizations, Greater Kansas City Coalition to End Homelessness and United Community Services of Johnson County, entered into a formal agreement with the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) to serve as the HMIS Lead Agency. The HMIS Lead Agency role is to administer the local HMIS and ensure that it meets the needs of local agencies, the two CoCs and the community at-large.

The HMIS Lead Agency must develop written policies and procedures for all HMIS participating agencies using the system, execute participation agreements with each of these agencies and their system users, and monitor and enforce compliance by all participating agencies with the requirements set out in the participation agreement.
