|Program Type(s)||Select a Program Type to filter the choices available in the Program(s) parameter.|
|Program(s)||Select the program(s) to include in the report.|

This report generates information regarding program performance. It enables outside entities to apply scores/grades to agency programs.
Although you can select multiple programs in the parameters, this report does not categorize results by program; the totals provided are conglomerate scores of all programs selected in the parameters.
The report provides information on 4 categories of performance:
- Project serves “harder to serve” homeless populations
- Reduce length of homeless episodes and new and return entries into homelessness
- Increase jobs, income and self-sufficiency
- HMIS Participation and Data Quality
Project serves “Harder to Serve” homeless populations
This section captures the percentage of households served who reported at least one of the criteria listed below: (A household can be comprised of one individual).
- Mental Illness
- Alcohol Abuse
- Drug Abuse
- Chronic Health Condition
- Developmental Disabilities
- Physical Disabilities
- Domestic Violence

The default source of this information is the program enrollment screen. However, should any of the above fields NOT be included in the program enrollment screen, the information will then be generated from the client profile screen.
Reduce length of homeless episodes and new and return entries into homelessness
This section pertains only to Permanent Housing (PH), Transitional Housing (TH), Rapid Re-housing (RRH), and (SSO) programs.
|(PH programs only) % of persons in PH over six months||Automatically calculated from the Date field of the program entry and program exit screens of PH programs only.|
|(TH and RRH programs only) % of persons in TH exited to PH||Automatically calculated from the Destination data field on the TH program exit screen.|
|(TH programs only) Average days from entry to exit into PH||This timeframe is automatically calculated from the Date fields of the program entry and program exit screens of TH programs, along with the Destination data field on the TH program exit screen. This will be an integer value as opposed to a percentage.|
|(SSO programs only) % of households maintaining PH for at least 6 months||This information is automatically calculated from the Date fields of the program entry and program exit screens of PH programs.|
Increase jobs, income and self-sufficiency

Percentages of clients who have Don’t Know or Refused selected for any program-based screen is also included as well as average days between actual program enrollment or exit and Clarity record creation for each.
|% of persons who exit to known destinations||Derived from the Destination data field on the program exit screen.|
|% of persons with income data updated at least annually||Derived from any income-related data field on program exit screens and assessment screens.|
|% of program data response = Don’t Know or Refused||Total amount of times the Don’t Know or Refused data field is selected on any program-based screen.|
|Program Entry Average Data Entry Timeliness in days||This represents the average number of days between the client enrolling into the program and when the enrollment record was actually created in the Clarity system.|
|Program Entry Average Data Exit Timeliness in days||This represents the average number of days between the client exiting the program and when the exit record was actually created in the Clarity system.|
Points and Achieved (Yes, No, N/A) Columns
There are two columns located to the right of each of the 4 categories described above:
- Achieved (Yes, No, N/A)
These are quality-based categories that are determined by the evaluating parties. Therefore, the characteristics of these categories are subjective, and will be unique to each agency.
Total Outcome Achievement – 100 points available
This is the total from the Points column, thus it is subjective and will be unique to each agency.
Drilldown functionality is available for this report. Drilling down on a ‘%’ will yield a list of all clients associated with that list.
The information in the screenshot below is available for each drilldown.
