What is this Form Used For?

Each year, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires each Continuum of Care (CoC) to count its housing inventory on the same night as the annually required Point-in-Time (PIT) count.

*2020 Data Standards have made it necessary for us to update the Housing Inventory Chart for active HMIS participating, non-participating, and domestic violence projects on 10/1/2019. We anticipate this required updating of the Housing Inventory Chart, before this year’s Point In Time, will make subsequent HIC verifications, following the PIT, a smoother experience for everyone.

The accuracy and response rate of this survey contributes to the Balance of State CoC, Monroe CoC, and Northlake CoC’s overall competition for annual federal funding and their ability to acquire new resources to serve the homeless.

Who Uses this Form?

This survey is required to be completed by all agencies that have beds and units dedicated to serving homeless persons (regardless of funding source), and for permanent housing projects, dedicated for person who were homeless at entry.

Please have the following readily available as you complete this form:

  1. The staff person at your agency who can provide accurate information and answer questions about the project.

  2. Knowledge of the funding source.

  3. For federally-funded projects, HMIS Project Identification number (instructions are included in the form on how to locate this number).

  4. For shelters and housing projects, knowledge of the number of beds and units per this funding source. For voucher based shelters and scattered site lease based projects, number of units and beds occupied 10/1/2019.

Current Service Regions: Monroe CoC, Northlake CoC, and Balance of State CoC
