All emergency shelters, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing projects that are physically located in the AHAR jurisdiction during the October 1 to September 30 time period should be included in your AHAR data submission. The location of a project is determined by the physical location of its beds, rather than the project’s administrative office or headquarters. Accordingly, when considering a scattered-site project, the project should be included in your AHAR data if a plurality of the beds associated with that project is physically located within the AHAR jurisdiction.
In some situations, a CoC may have a scattered-site project that has beds located in multiple AHAR jurisdictions, rather than in a single facility—and thus the location of the project is unclear. For scattered-site projects, if the plurality of beds are located within the AHAR jurisdiction, then include the project as part of the AHAR. All the beds and people served in those beds should be reported in the community’s AHAR data.
