Delaware’s Community Management Information System - CMIS
The Community Management Information System (CMIS) is a database which allows agencies to collect basic demographic information, record services, update case plans, and track outcomes for their programs and the clients served.
Every jurisdiction in receipt of federal homeless funds is required to have this system in place; and the Homeless Planning Council of Delaware has been the administrator for CMIS since 2004.
It should be noted that from 2004 to 2011, the database was referred to as the “Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)”. Beginning in 2012, HPC began expanding the current system beyond homeless service providers. At that time, the name changed to “Community Management Information System (CMIS)”- to better identify its purpose as a community-wide outcomes and information management system.
For the purposes of receiving homeless funding from the federal government, the system still serves as Delaware’s “Homeless Management Information System”.
