Clarity Tips & Tricks

The MDHI team built a Data Quality dashboard for agencies to help monitor projects' data quality. Data Quality helps with client de-duplication, understanding demographics and equity, and assists with program eligibility. While not meant to replace APRs or the canned Data Quality Report, these dashboards should help keep you out of the red.

We see and appreciate your hard work!
