VASH beds should only be reported in the AHAR if they are participating in HMIS. That is, some communities have been able to input data on VASH vouchers into their HMIS. If this is the case, then VASH vouchers are counted the same as other PSH programs. On the other hand, if your community has not reported VASH data into the HMIS, then please do not include them in the non-HMIS bed count. We do not factor non-HMIS VASH beds into the bed coverage rate. However, your Liaison will ask you to update your non-HMIS participating VASH bed counts in order to properly extrapolate for your community. If you have more questions about this during the AHAR data collection period, please be sure to ask your AHAR data Liaison.
