The System Performance Measures (SPMs), developed through the Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act (HEARTH Act), 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 data included in the System Performance Measure dashboard below is a based on the federal fiscal year (October 1 through September 30). The Office to Prevent and End Homelessness reports the System Performance Measure data to the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) annually on behalf of the Continuum of Care (Fairfax County CoC, VA-601).
