NY HPNAP Reporting

 

Purpose of this document

 

This document illustrates how to set up the HPNAP to comply with the reporting requirements set forth by the state of New York. The HPNAP (Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program) reporting system within Ceres provides the ability to comply with the reporting requirements set forth by the state of New York. After some initial setup, Ceres provides the ability to record the required information and export it in a format acceptable to the governing authority. This document is comprised of three sections, Setup, Review, and Reporting.

 

 

Ceres Object release 6.00.00 is required for the functionality described in this document.


 

 

TABLE OF CONTENTS


 
 

Setup

 

Company Information Setup

 

Company Information can be accessed by selecting “Search” from the Dynamics 365 Business Central Banner and entering “Company Information” in “Tell me what you want to do” then selecting “Company Information” from the results in the Go to Pages and Tasks section OR by selecting the “Company Information” menu action (if present) from your Role Center home page.

 

  

Enter the HPNAP Project Number assigned to the food bank on the General Fast Tab. For example, we have entered the project number ‘HPNAP12345’ on our test company. The HPNAP Project Number is the ID that the State of New York uses to distinguish each food bank. This HPNAP Project Number will print on the header of each report and will be included in all export files.

The next step is to assign the HPNAP information to each agency participating in the HPNAP program. This is done on the “State Specific” fast tab on the agency card.
