A By-Name List is a real-time list of all people experiencing homelessness in your community. It includes a robust set of data points that support coordinated access and prioritization at a household level and and an understanding of homeless inflow and outflow at a system level. This real-time actionable data supports triage to services, system performance evaluation, and advocacy (for the policies and resources necessary to end homelessness).
The By-Name List (BNL) Scorecard helps you take a snapshot of your local progress toward a quality By-Name List and target areas for improvement. Communities continue to take the BNL Scorecard quarterly until they score a 10/10. For further detail on the BNL Scorecard, individual questions, scoring and tips, see the By-Name List Scorecard Guide.
