The Iowa Balance of State COC in Cooperation with the Polk County Iowa COC and ICA developed the Performance Measures Dashboard. Measures are run on a quarterly basis. They can be compared between COCs. The report is dynamic and responsive. Most displayed values have toggles and switches to set parameters. The report was implemented as a Tableau dashboard, so now not just the committee but the whole of the continuum can explore their data at their leisure.
The response from the committee, the board and the community has been universally positive ans we are constantly seeing this work result in real and actionable policy direction within the CoCs.
This dashboard includes the data that HUD Continua of Care submitted for Federal Fiscal Years 2015 and 2016. Check out your community's progress toward ending homelessness!
