ESG Reporting Contact Needed
KHC set up an automated email system that will notify each Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG)-funded agency's designated ESG report contact. This email will provide the user with instructions for completing the ESG CAPER reporting requirements. The ESG contact will receive the submission link and instructions directly from SAGE for each of their ESG project components. The purpose of the ESG report contact is to have one person identified to receive the links and submit their ESG CAPER reports directly into SAGE. Each agency should submit the contact information (name, email, phone number, and agency information) to by Friday, May 15, 2020, to provide enough time to update the automated system. 
KYHMIS Data Quality Report Update
KHC created a new document, which allows for easier processing of errors on presenting on the 640 Data Quality Report that agencies submit bi-monthly. The new 640 Data Quality Error Form was specifically designed to allow agencies the ability to not only identify but also describe errors generated within their Kentucky Homeless Management Information System (KYHMIS) report. It will replace any explanation needed when data quality errors are over the allotted threshold for data quality. The new form is available on the HCA Help Desk and the use of this form may begin immediately but should be used for the June reports. 
Upon KHC's request for error revision, please submit the completed form along with your data quality report submission. Agencies requiring additional assistance completing the form can request additional instruction through the Help Desk. 
In addition, we are excited to announce the release of a data quality training video this month. Continue to follow the eGrams for a release date.
Public Comment Period
The amended 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and amended 2019 Annual Action Plan is available for public comment now through Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

Kentucky has amended the 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and 2019 Annual Action Plan and is receiving written comments to obtain public input. Written comments will be accepted, and where applicable, will be incorporated into the document.

The Consolidated Plan is the Commonwealth's application and distribution plan for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Community Planning and Development Programs (CDBG, ESG, HTF, HOME, and HOPWA). KHC and the Department for Local Government (DLG) are the agencies responsible for submission of the plan to HUD.

KHC and DLG recently received additional funding allocations through the CARES Act for CDBG, ESG, and HOPWA, necessitating amendments to planning documents.

The amended 2015-2019 Consolidated Plan and 2019 Annual Action Plan are available for review on KHC's website. Please send written comments by email to
