If a homeless program serves multiple household types and do not have a specific number of beds designated for each specific household type, how should I record this program in the HIC?

There are two methodologies for designating household types in a program that serves multiple household types without a fixed number of beds for each household type. The beds may be apportioned by household type based on average utilization rates during the year. (This is the methodology described in the 2010 HMIS Data Standards.) Alternatively, the beds may be apportioned based on how they are used on the night designated for the point-in-time count. (This is the methodology described in past HIC guidance.)
