Point-In-Time Count Reports (PIT)

The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered homeless persons on a single night in January. 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). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally. 

Housing Inventory Count Reports (HIC)

The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care that provides beds and units dedicated to serving persons who are homeless, categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing, Rapid Re-housing, Safe Haven, and Permanent Supportive Housing.  The HIC includes all homeless beds regardless of funding source.

For the 2020 HIC, please see the report above in the PIT Count section.

HUD Continuum of Care Awards

HUD Continuum of Care Program funds may be used for projects under five program components: permanent housing, transitional housing, supportive services only, HMIS, and, in some cases, homelessness prevention.  These funds are competitively awarded both at the local level and national level.  Nearly 80% of the annual CoC award to Baltimore City is allocated to permanent supportive housing programs, which provide permanent housing subsidies coupled with supportive services to people who are chronically homeless.
