Veteran Status for HMIS, per HUD

In HMIS, Veteran Status should be ‘Yes’ for anyone who has ever been on active duty in the armed forces of the United States, regardless of discharge status or length of service.

• For members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard, active duty begins when a military member reports to a duty station after completion of training.
• For members of the Reserves and National Guard, active duty is any time spent activated or deployed, either in the United States or abroad.

Data Analyst – Full-time position requires creating and maintaining database reports. Responsibilities include: obtaining statistics from homeless service providers, statistical analysis and report writing using ART (Advanced Reporting Tool), which is SAP Business Objects software (similar to Crystal Reports).

APR (Annual Performance Report) Interim review guidance

We wanted to remind everyone that must submit an APR (Annual Performance Report) that the annual assessment must be recorded no more than 30 days before the anniversary of the client’s Project Entry Date, regardless of the date of the most recent ‘update’ or ‘annual assessment’, if any [annually]. Information must be accurate as of the Information Date.

The annual assessment is performed in the Entry/Exit tab using the "Interim" icon

We updated the annual assessment form, but only changed the wording to remind users when this must be done for reporting.

HMIS Maintenance Scheduled for 1/23/16
