Requesting Data from Chicago’s HMIS
All Chicago is the HMIS lead for the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC). If you need information from Chicago’s HMIS, begin by checking for that information on the dashboards. If the information is not available, an HMIS Data Request may be submitted. Requests take time so please submit them as early as possible.
All Chicago receives requests from both within and outside of the CoC. To be accepted, requests must further the mission of the Chicago CoC. Before submitting, please read the request workflow below to learn about the process. Also please read the Chicago CoC Research Agenda below to see if this applies to your request.
Requests will be prioritized according to the needs of the CoC and All Chicago’s obligations as Chicago’s HMIS lead agency and collaborative applicant. The time between a request being accepted and the final delivery of data will depend on All Chicago staff capacity and resources.
Some requests, such as those that come from outside the continuum of care or that are for advocacy or research purposes, may be subject to a charge of $125/hour of staff time. All Chicago will review any fees with you before beginning work on your data request.

The Chicago CoC Research Agenda
The Research Agenda indicates areas of interest for the CoC’s research partners. The agenda is also a statement of the values and expectations that inform the project review process. The CoC hopes researchers, funders, and potential partners utilize the Research Agenda as a resource to inform our collective work to prevent and end homelessness.
