2010 HAP Manual TextEdit

The 2010 HAP Manual has many changes that are not currently part of SFHomeless.net. The question is whether the wiki or the manual contains the most up to date information. The most efficient way to ensure the wiki has the best information is to add the 2010 HAP Manual text into its respective wiki agency page under a new section “2010 HAP Manual”. It will then be up to future wiki users to determine whether and how to update the agency page with the new information.
