2018 Housing Inventory Count & Point-In-Time Counts
HOUSING INVENTORY COUNT
The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within your Continuum of Care that provide beds and units dedicated to serve persons who are homeless. The HIC is categorized by five Program Types.
- Emergency Shelter: Total number of emergency shelter beds and units that are designated to serve people who are homeless and are recognized as part of the formal homeless system.
- Transitional Housing: Total number of transitional housing beds and units designated to serve people who are homeless and are recognized as part of the formal homeless system.
- Safe Haven: Total number of Safe Haven beds and units that satisfy HUD’s standards, as identified in the 2009 NOFA.
- Rapid Re-housing: Total number of rapid re-housing beds and units.
- Permanent Supportive Housing: Total number of permanent supportive housing beds and units.
The Point-in-Time (PIT) count refers to a sheltered and unsheltered count of homeless persons. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of homeless persons who are sheltered in emergency shelter, transitional housing, and Safe Havens on a single night. Continuums of Care also must conduct a count of unsheltered homeless persons every other year (odd numbered years). Counts are based on:
- Number of persons in households without children;
- Number of persons in households with at least one adult and one child; and
- Number of persons in households with only children. This includes only persons age 17 or under, including one-child households, adolescent parents and their children, adolescent siblings, or other household configurations composed only of children.
Counts are further broken down into subpopulation categories including counts of persons who are chronically homeless, persons with severe mental illness, chronic substance abusers, veterans, persons with HIV/AIDS, and victims of domestic violence.
“Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Programs Housing Inventory Count Reports provide a snapshot of a CoC’s HIC, an inventory of housing conducted annually during the last ten days in January, and are available at the national and state level, as well as for each CoC. The reports tally the number of beds and units available on the night designated for the count by program type, and include beds dedicated to serve persons who are homeless as well as persons in Permanent Supportive Housing. New for this year, the reports also include data on beds dedicated to serve specific sub-populations of persons.”
“Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Programs Homeless Populations and Subpopulations Reports provide counts for sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons by household type and subpopulation, available at the national and state level, and for each CoC. The reports are based on Point-in-Time (PIT) information provided to HUD by CoCs in the application for CoC Homeless Assistance Programs. The PIT Count provides a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night during the last ten days in January.
Note: HUD has conducted a limited data quality review but has not independently verified all of the information submitted by each CoC. The reader is therefore cautioned that since compliance with these standards may vary, the reliability and consistency of the homeless counts may also vary among CoCs. Additionally, a shift in the methodology a CoC uses to count the homeless may cause a change in homeless counts between reporting periods. These reports are available starting in 2005.”
“Continuum of Care (CoC) Homeless Assistance Programs Dashboard Reports show claimed geography and geographic coverage changes for the previous two program years and also include information on each CoC’s awards by award amount, program type, and renewal type. The reports contain summary data from the Point-in-Time (PIT) count and Housing Inventory Count (HIC), which provide a quick overview of a CoC’s performance in serving homeless individuals with their CoC awards.
Note: This report is based on information provided to HUD by CoCs in the CoC application and has not been independently verified by HUD.”
“CoC Award Summary Reports by Program Type provide snapshots of award data broken down by eligible program component types for the year selected. The reports, which can be run to show a specific CoC or State’s program components, also display the amount and percentage of new projects and renewal projects.
Note: FY 2012 is the first year awards were made under the new CoC Program, which consolidated the three separate McKinney-Vento homeless assistance programs, including the Supportive Housing Program (SHP), Shelter Plus Care (S+C) Program, and Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation SRO Program. Awards made in 2011 or earlier are broken down by eligible program components as authorized through the SHP, S+C, and SRO program regulations.”
