The Housing Inventory Count that is submitted as part of the CoC funding application provides a full listing of emergency shelter, transitional housing, and permanent supportive housing providers located in the CoC. In the inventory, each provider should be associated with a geocode that designates the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) jurisdiction where the provider is located. Every emergency shelter, transitional housing, or permanent supportive housing provider with the geocode that corresponds to the AHAR jurisdiction should be reported in the AHAR. FAQ 1732 provides more information on how to properly identify the geocode associated with a sample site.
In some situations, an AHAR sample site may contain one or more scattered-site projects—that is, the project’s beds are located in multiple CDBG 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 sample site, 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.
