DRGR can submit addresses to HUD's Geocode Service Center (GSC) to identify when an address does not appear valid and to allow users to make corrections to improve the accuracy of addresses.
Address should only be reported once per activity in the QPR. Note: Addresses may also now be uploaded into DRGR - see additional upload FAQs for more information.
Once addresses are added, select the addresses using the checkbox next to each address (or check all addresses using the Check All button and click the Validate Selected button.
Grantees can View Results of the address validation and then Accept.
DRGR will display a graphic showing the confidence level and allow users to accept data or resubmit after edits have been made. Users can view details to see more information on the address match and they can also view an address on a map. If the GSC considers the match good, it will show a higher percent. One of the things that can improve accuracy is to include N or S in front of a street name or E and W if the street name has more than one direction.
A master report of addresses by activity and QPR begin date is available in the Reports module. This report is helpful in troubleshooting address data entry problems or showing the history of addresses across activities.
