The AHAR season officially began on October 1st, 2011. AHAR stands for Annual Homeless Assessment Report. It is an annual report to Congress from HUD about the number and characteristics of people who use homeless residential services and their patterns of use. Each year HUD emphasis on HMIS and AHAR participation increases. AHAR participation status is a question in HUD’s CoC funding application. AHAR is the primary source of data on the extent and nature of homelessness nationwide. The HEARTH Act requires HMIS participation. This years’ AHAR reviews data from 10/1/2010 to 9/30/2011.
