System Performance Measures are a selection of criteria used by Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to evaluate how local Continua of Care are performing. Developed through the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act (HEARTH Act), the System Performance Measures allow communities to monitor progress toward the goal of preventing and ending homelessness. The measures provide a standardized summary and year-to-year comparison of system wide counts, averages, and medians related to seven areas of performance.
The following dashboard includes each of the 7 system performance measures. The yearly data included in the System Performance Measure dashboard below is based on the federal fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) with each quarter breakout for the last year.
