Has HUD set any system coverage or data quality thresholds for the System Performance Measures, as is currently done for the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR)?

For the short term, no thresholds have been set. Unlike the AHAR, HUD expects every community to report the System Performance Measure data. HUD may impose data quality factors in its CoC Program NOFA criteria in the future. This would likely apply to both the data quality and bed coverage. For bed coverage, HUD set a standard of 86 percent in the FY 2016 CoC Program NOFA. However, data quality and bed coverage standards will evolve over time as HUD receives more information on how systems are working. HUD is looking at various ways to gauge data quality. As this evolves, HUD will provide more information.
