To all SPOC’s and Technical Contacts:

As shared in the May 23, 2019 communication to counties, the CWDS Project is moving forward with the development of CWS-CARES by utilizing a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution. However, the project will continue to maintain the features currently in production (CANS, Facility Search and Snapshot) until they can be fully replaced or incorporated into the new platform.

To reduce confusion about features in production versus future development, CWDS will begin using the term “CARES-Live” when communicating about the existing features and “CARES” when communicating about the future development of CWS-CARES.”
