What's the latest in terms of the CoC APR? We're glad you asked!

On October 18th we released the CoC APR v16 with CoC APR USER MANUAL v16. The report was updated to correct a slight issue with one of the variables. We've since learned that users were running into a validation error in e-snaps and have made a correction to the report to address this validation error and to adjust the Sliding Date variable to allow for flexibility in determining the Follow-Up date. We are releasing v17 of the CoC APR and User Manual in the auto-mapper on Friday, October 25th.

Update on CoC APR in E-snaps: Latest Information via the HUD Vendor Forum

To: All HMIS Vendors
On October 1, 2013 HUD’s CoC APR was scheduled to change reflect revisions to the income related questions. As planned, HMIS vendors implemented these revisions on October 1.

However, we have now learned that neither e-snaps nor the CoC APR Guidebook were updated. Given the current government shutdown, these changes cannot be implemented until HUD re-opens.

IMPORTANT! For Agencies that need to run a COC APR


Do you have questions about the HUD required re-design of the CoC APR? Keep reading to learn more! The new version of the CoC APR will be available by HUD’s requested release date of October 1, 2013. The new version will be available in e-snaps beginning on October 1, 2013.

We have upgraded to ServicePoint 5.8.5

Here are the SP5.8 Highlights
Most of the changes to the ServicePoint 5.8 upgrade are performance enhancements and fixed issues so are “under the covers” and will not affect the user interface and screens that you use.

NH-HMIS ServicePoint mandatory refresher training

NH-HMIS ServicePoint mandatory refresher training is taking place the week of September 9th.
Registration through EventBrite is now open.

You’ll want to sign up as soon as possible as there is limited availability at each location that is determined by how many workstations are at the site (you may have to share workstations if we run out). So, registration is being offer on a first come, first served basis for each session, day, and location.

If you attended ServicePoint 5.7 training, you were given a large blue binder. Please remember to bring that binder with you to the ServicePoint refresher training so you can make notes and add any new documents. If you do not have a binder, please check off the box in the Registration Form to indicate that you need us to bring a binder for you on training day.
