Hello System Administrators,
We are excited to announce that the 2020 HUD HMIS Data Standards updates are now in effect, and available within your instance.
Please update any existing Program Templates with the applicable new  System screens (or customized versions), in order to make them available to your end users.
In addition, please reference the below resources as guidance for any tasks needing completion in order to update your system to the 2020 Data Standards, and for additional information regarding the update:
|Please note: If Bitfocus provides your system administration services, your team is already planning for these changes and will be working closely with you to ensure a smooth roll out.|
As an update regarding the updated HUD CSV Export and the Data Import Tool (DIT): HUD CSV Export version 2020 will be available as of October 1 in alignment with the 2020 HMIS CSV specification. The previous HUD CSV Export version 6.1.2 will remain available for the near future for any applicable reporting purposes, and beginning October 1, the DIT will only accept CSV version 2020 imports in order to ensure accurate import into the database.
Thank you for your time and attention during this transition.
If you have any questions about these upcoming changes, please reach out to our friendly Technical Support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will be happy to assist you.
