A

CoCs should respond to the questions in 3A. Continuum of Care (CoC) System Performance based on the following data:

CoC Application Question Number CoC Application Question Label System Performance Measure Metric Number System Performance Measure Metric Description
3A-1 First Time Homeless Metric 5.2 The number of first time homeless entering ES, SH, TH, and PH projects with no prior enrollment in HMIS.
3A-2 Length-of-Time Homeless Metric 1a, row 2 The average length of time people experience homelessness in ES, SH, and TH
3A-3(1) Successful Permanent Housing Placement and Retention Metric 7b.1 Persons in ES, SH, TH and PH-RRH who exited, plus persons in other PH projects who exited to permanent housing destinations
3A-3(2) Successful Permanent Housing Placement and Retention Metric 7b.2 Persons in all PH projects except PH-RRH who exited after moving into housing who exited to permanent housing destinations, or who moved into housing and remained in the PH project
3A-4* Returns to Homelessness Metric 2a Percentage that exit from SO, ES, TH, SH, and PH to a permanent housing destination and return within 6 months.

*In question 3A-4 the question asks for the percentage of individuals and persons in families returning to homelessness over a 6- and 12-month period as reported in HDX. CoCs should use system performance measure Metric 2a, percentage that exit from SO, ES, TH, SH, and PH to a permanent housing destination and return within 6 months. CoCs should only report the 6-month data in the field asking for the percentage. HUD will use the CoC Competition reports that each CoC is required to export from HDX and import into e-snaps to add the data from the 6-month and 6 to 12-month data to derive the 12-month data.
