Pathways release V5.16.76 will be available this evening (June 15, 2011). The APR report is being released to allow agencies and CoC leads to begin looking at agency data in the new format well advance of required reporting deadlines.
This release includes the New HUD APR Report, and modifications to the Processing Pages to improve the quality of data entered during a process. In the near future, modifications will be made to the Programs page that will allow updating and adding financial information. This addition will also improve the quality of data submitted to the new HUD APR.
Finally, an improved version of the Program Enrollment and Discharge Export will be available shortly. This report will be used to help identify clients reported in the HUD APR who have missing data.
The changes, all of which are designed to improve the quality of the data used to submit the new HUD APR to e-snaps, are outlined below:
New HUD APR Report (pdf):
The New APR is presented in two separate reports, HUD APR I and HUD APR II.
HUD APR I covers e-snaps questions 7-25. To access this report:
Main Menu > Reports > Statistical > HUD APR Format> HUD APR I (Do not filter) > enter parameters. (Note- be sure the Filter parameter is set to “No”.)
HUD APR II covers e-snaps questions 26-29. To access this report:
Main Menu > Reports > Statistical > HUD APR Format > HUD APR II (Do not filter) > enter parameters. (Note- be sure the Filter parameter is set to “No”.)
While extensive testing has been completed on the APR reports, a couple of situations continue to be addressed:
APR Questions 23-26 are still undergoing additional testing to ensure accuracy.
Some labels are being corrected to match those in e-snaps, and some other minor issues are still being corrected.
