Finally, a two-part presentation draws on the expertise of two individuals whose work will impact PATH data reporting and collection as the program moves towards integrating the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) as its tool for PATH program data collection and reporting. Julie Hovden is a Program Analyst in HUD's Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs. Ms. Hovden's primary areas of responsibility are implementation and project management of the electronic grants management system, HMIS policy development, and coordination of technical assistance activities.

Bernie Bluhm, M.Ed., has been involved in social work and program management since 1976. Since 2007, Mr. Bluhm has been the State PATH Contact for New Hampshire. In addition to his role as State PATH Contact, Mr. Bluhm also provides oversight for two of New Hampshire's three Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) grants, and is the grantee representative for the New Hampshire Homeless Management Information System.

The presentation addresses how PATH data aligns with the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development's (HUD) Data and Technical Standards and the implications for the PATH Annual Data Report followed by small group, round table discussions. A facilitated discussion follows the presentation aimed at obtaining feedback about the updated PATH Annual Data Report. (Find out more about HMIS and PATH)
