City Data Services is a company that designs and hosts data management systems for counties, cities and private businesses. Our systems have been used since 2008 for managing all aspects of multi-family/single family housing projects/programs, social services, (as funded by general funds, CDBG, ESG, HOME - any other funding sources), special fees, (ie., mitigation fees, health fees, art fees) and other business, customer relations needs.



CDS' systems are used to efficiently facilitate the multi-points of data entry needed to generate periodic reports, applications, invoices, contracts, billing, mapping, compliance and monitoring; any information required to efficiently manage your public programs and projects. In addition, we provide you the ability to transmit information directly into HUD's IDIS (and other report systems needed on whatever schedule required) with a click of a mouse. Our system can make work much easier and for a fraction of the costs you spend shuffling paper, tracking down phone numbers and correcting math.


All Housing, Human Services and Special Funds

We can put a system up within weeks. Once we have data collected through forms, applications and/or periodic reports, we can produce any type of summary or data compilation needed in Excel or any format required. The data from federally funded programs/projects are reported directly to IDIS and at the end of the year, CDS's system can assist with compiling tables and summaries for the CAPER or any report needed.


Staff and service providers using our system find that it is an efficient way to leverage time and resources. We know that a high percentage of your sub-recipients provide services over a period of several years. Once their information is in the system it can populate future applications and reports yet be modified to provide the most current information. Doing it this way reduces training time for your sub-recipients, and eases the transition from a paper-driven system they are accustomed to, to an on-line system which is much faster, more efficient and more accurate; saving time and money. Not to mention the efficiency of having all documents electronically in one place.


Our clients will attest that we provide exceptional customer service. When you contract with City Data Services you are not only getting an extraordinarily efficient system to replace paper but you are also getting 24/7 support for you and your sub-recipients, whatever you need for your comprehensive, user friendly cloud-based system. We do not charge anything extra - if you need a whole new set of forms, no charge, additional in person training, no charge, additional client phone training, no charge, additional Committee training, no charge, additional workshop training, no charge.


Overall, we have four modules: Public Service (Human Services), Single Family Housing, Multi-family Housing and Special Funds (ie, landfill mitigation fees, health fees, etc.). You can view examples of our system at www.citydataservices.com, there is a demo under "Products". The demo is a scaled down version of what we do. When we work with you we put in place an electronic version of your paper system. - all documents and management tools - applications, contracts, multiple reports, compliance, monitoring, request for payments, board member application evaluations, mapping, etc.


Our modules are entirely self contained, anything and everything you need to do within the module(s) you choose, we assist you in doing. You will not have to buy something else to have a comprehensive, responsive, robust system. I was on the other side of the desk for many years and I know you have budgets to maintain. Our systems are affordable, we charge a flat fee to develop a module and a flat maintenance fee. If you purchase more than one, we give you a break on the costs.


The sooner you sign up, the sooner you will see a clean desk and more time for..... monitoring ;) Join our satisfied customers, call Chris, 415.572.4572, to schedule a meeting.
