HUD has approved an extension until April 22, 2019 for the completion of the LSA Data Validation process. HUD’s AHAR team members will continue to assist with one-on-one support throughout this process, and HUD will make available additional support as needed.
HUD’s 2018 AHAR found that persons experiencing homelessness on a single night in 2018 increased 0.3 percent since last year. Meanwhile, homelessness among veterans fell 5.4 percent and homelessness experienced by families with children declined 2.7 percent nationwide.
The deadline for submitting official LSA data via HDX 2.0 has been extended to 11:59 PM PST on December 14, 2018. Any CoCs who have already uploaded their data will need to re-upload their Official data once HUD announces fixes to HDX 2.0.
