Beginning on April 1, 2017, Continuum of Care (CoC) homeless assistance grant recipients must submit their Annual Performance Report (APR) data through a new online database – the Sage HMIS Reporting Repository (Sage). Communities will no longer submit APRs in e-snaps. This change in systems applies to all CoC homeless assistance grants (e.g., Supportive Housing Program, Shelter Plus Care, Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program, CoC Program) administered by the Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS) – regardless of when they were initially funded.
To receive access to Sage, recipient staff need to access the Sage portal (www.sagehmis.info) and enter the contact information and the recipient affiliation (i.e., CoC). The CoC Primary Contact, who is the person identified by the Collaborative Applicant in the FY2016 CoC Program Registration as the Primary Contact, will then need to approve all users. The CoC Primary Contact will be notified when a user requests access and the user will be notified when the CoC authorizes that user’s access. The CoC Primary Contact should regularly access Sage and approve user access. HUD recommends that recipients provide CoC Primary Contacts a list of users they want approved for Sage access.
