Note: This FAQ relates to HMIS, HDX

The 2017 AHAR is based on HMIS data on emergency shelter (ES), transitional housing (TH), and permanent supportive housing (PSH) projects from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017. The criteria for which projects to include or exclude are the same this year as they were last year. Specifically, RRH DEM, PATH, SSO, SSVF, and Street Outreach projects are not included in the AHAR. RRH projects are considered Permanent Housing and not Permanent Supportive Housing, and are therefore not included in the AHAR. RHY funded programs that provide TH and ES beds should be included in the AHAR.

In short, you should only include ES, TH, and PSH projects in the AHAR. Permanent Housing beds labeled anything besides PSH, such as RRH and OPH (other permanent housing) should not be included.
