Program goals include communicating and improving the impact of programs for affordable housing, senior housing, special needs housing, and the homeless population.

Member Duties: The VISTA member will review data completeness reports, performance reports, reports using the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS), and will then compare data to service goals and outcome measures.

The collection of data for dashboard integration will include developing data collection tools, communication tools/models, solicitation of data from key stakeholders, and collection of data and information dissemination where gaps exist.
