As you are working with your Abt Liason for AHAR submission, please be aware that there are several pending adjustments to the current AHAR report that is due in the HDX on December 1, 2016.
The following updates are expected in an upcoming version of ServicePoint:
  • Emergency Shelters coded as Night-by-Night will have coding changes to account for differences in counts for actual nights in shelter. These include changes to Bed Utilization, Length of Stay and Point in Time Counts.
  • Project inclusion for Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH). The PSH shells will be limited to PSH only, removing other non-required PH types.
  • Disability Types will remove "Chronic Health Condition" from "Missing."
These updates are a result of recent clarifications from HUD. Release date will be announced in an upcoming NewsFlash and depending on the project types included in your submission you may need to re-upload/enter your AHAR data into HDX. Please note that you may need to request your Abt Liason re-open table shells that are already marked "Complete".
