Retiring ART Gallery Reports

Bowman Client Update Retiring ART Gallery Reports We are going to retire the following ART Gallery reports from the ART Gallery on July 7, 2017: List of reports being retired from ART Gallery: 0603 - HOPWA CAPER - v10 0604 - HOPWA APR - v8 0625 - HUD CoC APR – v29 (Old version) The HOPWA reports will be retired as the only current HMIS requirement for HOPWA providers is to collect the current Data Dictionary elements in HMIS. The 0603/0604 reports are based on an old workflow using pre-2014 HMIS Data Dictionary fields. HUD TA has indicated that at some point vendors will receive report specifications for a new HOPWA APR/CAPER. Until then, HOPWA providers will need to compile reporting information outside of HMIS or using customized reporting. HUD's encourages HOPWA providers to use HMIS as the data is valuable to the CoC for Planning and Coordinated Entry but HOPWA reporting does not come from HMIS at this time.
