Fourth Quarter HOPWA Performance Profiles Now Available

HUD has posted HOPWA Performance Profiles (hudexchange.info/manage-a-program/hopwa-performance-profiles/) for the fourth quarter of the Program Year 2013 – 2014. HUD has also posted revised performance profiles for Quarters 1, 2, and 3 of Program Year 2013 – 2014.

HOPWA performance profiles are generated for all agencies receiving HOPWA formula or competitive grants. Performance Profiles are available at the national level and by individual grantee. In particular, the reports provide a grant summary, a beneficiary summary, outcomes data, and output data for activity types (housing assistance, housing development, supportive services, housing information services, and administration and management services).

Note – Data collection and validation actions are pending with some reports. Profiles with no data mean that the grantee has yet to submit their performance report.
