Upcoming Test Deadline: CoCs should plan to log into the HDX 2.0 and complete a test LSA upload by November 9, 2018. If the upload fails due to fatal errors, CoCs should immediately begin working with their vendor to resolve formatting or programming issues with the file export.
A summary of the anticipated 2018 LSA submission cycle’s schedule is below:
As a reminder, all community resources and guidance related to the LSA are announced through the HUD Exchange mailing list and are available on the LSA Tools and Guidance homepage.
If you have questions pertaining to the LSA or HDX 2.0, please submit your questions through the AAQ portal on the HUD Exchange website. Select “HDX: Homelessness Data Exchange” from the “My question is related to” dropdown list on Step 2 of the AAQ question submission process.
HUD will also be hosting a second informational office hours session to support CoCs in the upload process. If you missed the first office hours session on October 23, 2018, materials from the session will be posted soon on the HUD Exchange.
LSA Submission Process: Discussion Session November 6, 2018 – 2:00 - 3:00 PM EST
This session will cover questions received through HUD’s Ask A Question (AAQ) portal about the LSA process. Staff from Abt Associates will also open up the event to allow participants the opportunity to ask and submit any other questions they may have. This session is being held one week after the HDX 2.0 opens for official submissions, and during the week that CoCs are expected to have completed a test upload in the HDX 2.0. It is an opportunity for CoCs to ask additional questions after having hands-on experience with the upload process.
