Investigating Data-sharing in Hudson County, New Jersey

Passman, Eve

In this capstone, I coordinated with the Corporation for Supportive Housing’s (CSH) Senior Program Managers Gabriel Schuster and Cassondra Warney over an eight-month period to deliver a strategy that will address the lack of supportive housing in Hudson County, New Jersey. Through qualitative research including case studies and interviews with relevant stakeholders, I analyzed the barriers to data-sharing among government agencies, nonprofits, as it relates to HOME grants and Community Development Block Grants.

Finally, I proposed solutions that promote more efficient data-sharing and ultimately generate improved housing outcomes in Hudson County. These solutions include advocating for buy-in at the state level, identifying what nonprofits, city, county and state officials' work relates to homelessness, and designating an official to advocate for improved data-sharing at the state-level.
