Standards for Success

The HUD Standards for Success Pilot is the agency’s newly developed standardized reporting framework for its discretionary grant programs. The framework’s main tenants are: (1) standardization of data elements, measures, definitions, metrics, and reporting periods across discretionary grant programs; (2) alignment of programmatic data elements and measures with higher-level agency priority goals and objectives; and (3) the utilization of record-level reports for greater analysis and responsiveness of programs. The new approach will be implemented incrementally over a multi-year transition period that will refine the approach, the data collected, and the tools developed. The first year of the pilot begins in FY 2017 with a subset of discretionary programs and grants participating, including:

  • Housing Opportunities for Persons with HIV/AIDS (HOPWA) Program
  • Multifamily Housing Service Coordinator (MFSC) Program, Budget-based (B-b) Service Coordinators, Resident Opportunities and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) Program using AASC Online or FamilyMetrics software
  • FY 2016 Resident Opportunities and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS)

Broader implementation will be made in subsequent transition years.
