How do I handle a facility that participated in HMIS, but closed permanently during the year?

If an HMIS-participating provider closed (permanently) at some point during the AHAR reporting period, the provider can be included in the AHAR. Both the beds and the people served by the provider should be reported to the AHAR. The provider’s beds should be prorated depending on how long they were open during the 12-month reporting period. To prorate the beds, take the total number of beds and multiply them by the proportion of the reporting period that they were open. For example, a shelter had 100 beds and closed in April. These beds were available for 58 percent of the AHAR reporting period (or 7 / 12 = .58). The prorated bed count is therefore equal to 58 year-round equivalent beds (or 100 x .58 = 58).
