LSA Export - Project Focused LSA Report
[HUDX-231] LSA Export - Project-Focused LSA [FY 2022]
Report Purpose and Summary
The Longitudinal System Analysis (LSA) export is a requirement from HUD which replaces the Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR).
The LSA export from Clarity Human Services is not intended to be in a format that is usable, as is, for informing communities. HUD's intention is to have a reporting end product available from HDX following upload to HDX 2.0.
Make sure you are operating in Clarity under the agency you are running the report for. You can check and change this under your name in the top right corner.
Step 1: Click on the Launchpad, then click on the Reports icon.
Step 2: In the Report Library, click the down arrow next to the HUD Reports folder to expand the section.
Step 3: Click the Run button to the right of [HUDX-231] LSA Export – Project-Focused LSA.
Step 4: Enter the following parameters
|LSA Scope||Project-Focused LSA|
|CoC||Select the Continuum of Care|
|Agency Status||Select All Agencies, Active Agencies, or Inactive Agencies|
|Agency(-ies)||Select the agency(-ies) to include in the report (hold either control/command/shift button to select multiple)|

Step 5: Click submit
The file will be sent to the Report Queue. Once the report is processed, you will receive a notification that the report is ready.
To open the report, either select Open on the popup or click the Queue icon and then click Open.
Only the Systemwide LSA is to be uploaded to HDX 2.0.
The zipped CSV files that will be uploaded to HDX 2.0 should never be modified.
- Only the zip file name can be modified.
- If the CSV files are manually changed, problems are likely to be created.
- Fix the data in Clarity. That is the only way to correct problems.
