This article contains general instructions that are for agencies using a single provider for multiple funding sources (such as MN Housing LTH and DHS Housing Support funding). These instructions will supplement the information included in the General HMIS Instructions and Funder Specific User Guides but do not replace the instructions in those guides. Users should still be familiar with the data collection and reporting requirements described in the Funder Specific User Guides.
