COVID-19: MN HMIS Data Request

Due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) public health emergency declared in the United States in March 2020, the Institute for Community Alliances (ICA) has created a request form to process and review requests from public health officials and/or their designees for data housed within Minnesota's Homeless Management Information System (HMIS). 

The primary purpose of the form is to receive requests for data related to an individual with a presumptive or confirmed diagnosis of COVID-19, including current or prior known “stays” within projects participating in HMIS. These requests should be in partnership with a public health entity.

All other COVID-19 related requests for personally identifiable information for specific individuals can be submitted through this form, however they will be managed and guided through ICA’s standard policies for data privacy and confidentiality.


  1. Fill out and submit the COVID-19: MN HMIS Data Request Form, noting all required information. 
  2. A copy will automatically be delivered to ICA MN staff via the Helpdesk. If you have additional questions or need to add further clarity to your submission, please email the Helpdesk directly at
  3. Your data request will be reviewed as quickly as possible and you will receive a response within 2 business days confirming next steps.
