5 - Will you need to migrate data from your current system? If you need to migrate data, will you be migrating HUD data and custom data, or just HUD data?
5A - Yes, we will need to migrate HUD CoC program data, data from federal funding partners such as RHY and HOPWA, and possibly a small amount of custom data. The custom data would be around 700 vulnerability assessments but the assessment tool is being changed and we have not determined whether or not to migrate the old assessments yet.
