FY 2021 System Performance Measures Data Submission

FY 2021 System Performance Measures Data Submission

This information was originally distributed via HUD.gov. HUD Exchange is redistributing the information for awareness.

Continuums of Care (CoCs) can begin submitting their Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 System Performance Measures (SPM) data through the Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX) web portal on Friday, October 1, 2021. The FY 2021 SPM submissions are due on Monday, February 28, 2022 at 8:00 PM EST.

Meeting the data submission deadline for the SPM report is a factor considered in the annual CoC Program Competition. CoCs are encouraged to evaluate the amount of time it may take to compile and to enter the information needed to meet the reporting requirements. It is not anticipated that extensions will be granted for the data submission deadlines.

Throughout the submission period:

  • CoCs are encouraged to work with CoC Program recipients and Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Leads to prepare for annual reporting requirements
  • HMIS Leads are encouraged to work with their vendors to ensure they have access to the necessary reports and materials for their CoCs to meet upcoming deadlines and confirm/update their HDX 1.0 login information as necessary
  • CoC Program Recipients are encouraged to respond to any data quality-related requests from their HMIS Lead agencies and continue to monitor their projects’ data quality

Note: The report will be submitted through the original HDX 1.0. and not through the new HDX 2.0. Please be sure to visit the correct site when updating credentials. The two sites do not share passwords, so two separate passwords will need to be maintained/updated.

The 2019 Data Submission Manual, for guidance on entering FY 2021 SPM data via the HDX, and additional resources are available on the HUD Exchange System Performance Measures page.


Please email policy questions about SPM data to [email protected].
