Deadline Today: Final 2016 AHAR Data - All Persons and Veterans
The deadline for submitting the final Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress data for All Persons and Veterans is today, Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 11:59 PM PST.
At midnight Pacific Time, communities will no longer be able to make changes to their data in the Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX). Data are considered final at this time. By December 8th at 11:59 PM PST, all data categories will be marked as “Complete” if they were not already, and the Confirm button will appear, if it was not there already. While all users will be able to see the Confirm button, only the Continuum of Care (CoC) Primary’s account in HDX will show that button as live and with authority to press it. Confirmation should be completed by December 12, 2016.
