Reports & Data

If you would like data that is not offered in the Reports and Data page, please fill out this form. Our HMIS team will review your request in accordance with our HMIS Policies and Procedures. 

Point in Time Count

The Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. HUD requires that Continuums of Care conduct an annual count of people experiencing homelessness 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 people experiencing homelessness every other year (odd numbered years). Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.

Housing Inventory Count

The Housing Inventory Count (HIC) is a point-in-time inventory of provider programs within a Continuum of Care that provide beds and units dedicated to serve people experiencing homelessness (and, for permanent housing projects, where homeless at entry), categorized by five Program Types: Emergency Shelter; Transitional Housing; Rapid Re-housing; Safe Haven; and Permanent Supportive Housing.

System Performance Measures

The Department of Housing and Urban Development emphasizes viewing the local homeless response as a coordinated system instead of programs and funding sources that operate independently in a community. To facilitate this perspective, the federal government requires communities to measure their performance as a coordinated system, in addition to analyzing performance by specific projects or project types.

Racial Disparity Analysis Reports

The CoC Analysis Tool: Race and Ethnicity draws on Point-In-Time Count and American Community Survey data to facilitate analysis of racial disparities among people experiencing homelessness. Such an analysis is a critical first step in identifying and changing racial and ethnic disparities in our systems and services.

CoC Performance Report

CoC Performance Profile Reports provide a snapshot of a CoC's performance in addressing homelessness using performance indicators such as the length of time persons have been homeless, returns to homelessness over time, and exits to permanent housing.
