A

Yes, all permanent housing programs that are dedicated to homeless persons, including Continuum of Care (CoC) Program and Shelter Plus Care (S+C) programs should be included in the HIC. CoCs should determine what the appropriate permanent housing type is per HUD’s Notice for Housing Inventory Count (HIC) and Point-in-Time (PIT) Data Collection for Continuum of Care (CoC) Program and the Emergency Solutions Grants (ESG) Program:

  • Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH)
  • Rapid Re-housing (RRH)
  • Other PH (OPH) – consists of PH – Housing with Services (no disability required for entry) and PH – Housing Only, as identified in the 2014 HMIS Data Standards

Each permanent housing program must have a program-level PIT count on the HIC, even if they do not participate in the local HMIS.
