This announcement contains important information about the upcoming 2021 Longitudinal Systems Analysis (LSA) data submission process. The Homelessness Data Exchange (HDX) 2.0 will open for LSA uploads on Monday, December 6, 2021. Thank you for your patience as timelines have changed. These changes are a result of changes in HUD’s internal process and not the team of technical assistance providers supporting vendors or communities as they submit their LSA files.
The 2021 LSA data submission process will begin with a Preliminary Upload Phase. During this time, communities are encouraged to make at least one upload attempt. Communities will be able to view errors for their upload in the HDX 2.0 during the Preliminary Upload Phase; however, communities are not expected to begin data cleaning at this time.
The Preliminary Upload Phase will enable communities to:
- Acclimate to the updated HDX 2.0 interface
- Ensure the proper staff have permissions in the HDX 2.0
- Allow for communities to receive support from their vendors or LSA support staff via the AAQ in the event there are errors preventing uploads
