“All grantees awarded Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Program funds must submit an Annual Performance Report (APR). Beginning with grants expiring July 1, 2010 or later, the APR must be submitted electronically by the grantee via e-snaps. However, when a VAWA provider is a project sponsor, producing a single APR with unduplicated data for the grant is problematic since the VAWA provider is prohibited from using the HMIS to collect and generate data for the APR. Therefore, effective February 1, 2011, each CoC grant with at least one VAWA provider project sponsor must submit an APR with two sections, one for the VAWA provider(s) and one for the others via e-snaps per the guidance below. Both APRs are due in e-snaps within 90 days of the end of the grant’s operating year.”
Thus, if your grant has at least one VAWA provider project sponsor and at least one non-VAWA provider project sponsor, the grantee must effectively submit two APRs. In practice, e-snaps will prompt the grantee to enter client information for the two APRs consecutively, starting with the questions for the non-VAWA provider project sponsor(s) and following with questions labeled “DV” for the VAWA provider project sponsor(s). The APR will be automatically configured for you based on the information you enter in Q3 about whether the project is operated by a VAWA provider.
Please review the CoC APR Guidebook for additional information on the requirements for victim-service providers.
