This HUD HMIS Programming Specification document details the business rules required for the HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) Annual Performance Report (APR) and Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Consolidated Annual Performance and Evaluation Report (CAPER). These programming specifications were developed utilizing the HUD Data Standards as found in the 2017 HMIS Data Dictionary and cover all questions for the CoC APR and ESG CAPER where the information needed to answer the question is required/expected to be extracted from an HMIS or comparable database system.

These programming specifications are used to:

  • Generate the CoC APR for all projects required to submit an APR in the Sage HMIS Reporting Repository.
  • Generate the ESG CAPER which can be submitted to HUD in the Sage HMIS Reporting Repository beginning October 1, 2017. ESG CAPER data will no longer be reported with the eCart beginning October 1, 2017.
