About the Event: NHSDC is an all-volunteer led organization that holds two conferences per year (typically each April and October) for the express purpose of bringing together human services data professionals from around the country to learn best practices, inspire one another, and make connections. The Spring 2019 Conference is monumental for NHSDC. It is the first time we have co-sponsored a conference with HUD. This partnership allows both organizations, together, to provide you with the technical information you need to successfully measure progress towards preventing and ending homelessness as well as learn from inspiring examples of communities who have successfully used data to transform their systems of care by increasing capacity and building connections. If you are not able to attend the conference, you can watch the “Strategic Federal Partnerships in Ending Homelessness” panel live online and ask questions. There will be a chat moderator answering questions as they come into the chatroom.  A few questions will be read aloud to the federal partners. This is the first time HUD is attempting to offer this service so please be patient if we run into any challenges.
