Q

Some providers serve both homeless individuals and persons in families, but the beds are fluid and can be used by either household type throughout the year. How do I count the beds for this type of project?

A

The bed count for each household type should be calculated in proportion to the share of individuals and persons in families served during the AHAR reporting period.

For example, a project has 20 beds total and the beds float among individuals and persons in families depending on need. If during the AHAR reporting period, a project served 50 people total; 60 percent were individuals and 40 percent were people in families. The bed inventory that should be reported to the AHAR is equal to 12 beds for individuals (or 20 x .6 = 12) and 8 beds for people in families (or 20 x .4 = 8).
