System Performance Measures (SPM) Reports
What is in this report
The SPMs aggregate data from all housing and outreach programs in HMIS to measure participant outcomes achieved within the CoC region. Measures include overall length of time homeless, housing stability, income and employment, returns to homelessness, and exits to permanent housing.
How to understand this report
The outcomes reported in the SPMs are a major component of the CoC Competition for funding. HUD evaluates each CoC on its ability to improve outcomes compared to the previous year, and each project funded with HUD CoC program resources is expected to contribute to the CoC-wide effort to improve outcomes for people experiencing homelessness.
Because economic and political conditions and homeless response resources vary greatly between CoC regions, comparisons across CoC regions are not the intended use of this data. Instead, the data is meant to be viewed for a single region over time.
