HUD has released the Continuum of Care (CoC) Program Annual Performance Report (APR) for renewal and planning grants funded in fiscal year (FY) 2013. HUD anticipates releasing the CoC Program APR for new grants funded in FY 2013 in the coming weeks. HUD has updated the following guidebooks to assist recipients to understand HUD’s requirements for these CoC Program APRs:
- APR Guidebook for CoC Grant-Funded Programs
- APR Guidebook for HMIS Dedicated Projects
- CoC Planning APR Guidebook (new resource)
These guidebooks provide instruction on what recipients need to report to HUD during the CoC Program APR submission process.
To understand how to access a CoC Program APR, HUD encourages recipients to review the brief video on how to access an APR it published late last year.
In addition, HUD acknowledges that there were several issues with e-snaps that led to erroneous validation errors for some recipients. HUD has worked closely with the e-snaps team to correct these problems and encourages any recipients that experience further issues to notify HUD immediately via its Ask a Question (AAQ) portal.
HUD anticipates that by the end of 2015, it will further update the CoC Program APR. The updates will include changes to response categories that correspond to the 2014 HMIS Data Standards and will also revise or add certain questions to make the APR more compliant with the implementation of the HEARTH Act. More information on the updated APR will be provided later this year.
If you have additional questions about the data standards, please submit them through the HUD Exchange Ask a Question (AAQ) portal. On Step 2 of the question submission process, select e-snaps Reporting System in the “My question is related to” dropdown.
