Georgia Homeless Management Information System

HMIS Privacy Notice

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and other federal and state partners require that each jurisdiction that receives homeless funding have a Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) in place. Therefore, this Agency is required to participate in the GA Homeless Management Information System (GA HMIS), a computerized system that collects and stores basic information about the persons who receive services from this Agency. The goal of the GA HMIS is to assist us in determining your needs and to provide a record for evaluating the services we are providing to you.

We only collect information that is needed to provide you services, or that we consider relevant to helping us understand the scope and dimensions of homelessness in order to design effective service delivery. We do not use or disclose your information without written consent, except when required by our funders or by law, or for specific administrative or research purposes outlined in our privacy policy. By requesting and accepting services from the project, you are giving consent for us to enter your personal information into the GA HMIS.

The collection and use of all personal information is guided by strict standards of confidentiality as outlined in our privacy policy. A copy of our agency's Privacy Policy and a copy of the Georgia HMIS Privacy Policy is available upon request for your review.
