HMIS Data Request

Requesting Data from Chicago’s HMIS

Effective September 2023, the Chicago CoC adopted a new process for prioritizing all custom data requests. All Chicago reviews all data requests in accordance with the Data Request Prioritization tool and framework. Before submitting a data request, please review all documents included below. Also, please read the Chicago CoC Research Agenda below to see if this applies to your request. Some requests may be subject to a charge of $150/hr of staff time. All Chicago will review any fees with you before beginning work on your data request.

Chicago CoC Research Agenda

In 2020, All Chicago convened stakeholders from the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC) to develop a proactive statement on what research is most important to the CoC, which is reflected in the Chicago CoC Research Agenda. The agenda communicates the type of research the Chicago CoC is interested in having conducted by research partners and the values and expectations that inform the project review process. Foremost, partnerships should actively contribute to preventing and ending homelessness in Chicago.

All Chicago reviews all research partnership requests in an equitable manner using the criteria in this agenda. In addition to these research partnerships, All Chicago writes reports on topics of special interest to the Chicago CoC.
