This concept paper on measuring the performance of programs that serve homeless people has three objectives. It is intended to: 1) Help the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) improve and expand upon national reporting of performance for HUD programs that serve
homeless people; 2) Help state and local planners, program administrators, and homeless assistance providers design expanded performance measurement systems that are tailored to local needs and client populations; and 3) Help HUD and other federal agencies streamline and coordinate national reporting of performance across federal government programs that serve homeless people, including plans for the use of new Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) for national performance reporting.
