Extension of 2021 HIC and PIT Count Data Submission Deadline – Tuesday, May 18, 2021

May 14, 2021 Print ShareThis

Due to technical issues with HDX 1.0, HUD is extending the 2021 Housing Inventory Count (HIC) and Point-in-Time (PIT) Count data submission deadline to Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 8:00 PM EDT.

NOTE: These reports will not be submitted through the new HDX 2.0, but will instead be submitted through the original HDX “1.0.” Please be sure you are visiting the correct site and updating your credentials there. The two sites do not share passwords, so you will need to maintain/update two separate passwords – one for each site.

Meeting the data submission deadline for the HIC and PIT count has historically been a factor considered by HUD in the annual CoC Program Competition. CoCs should consider the amount of time it may take to compile and enter information needed to meet the 2021 reporting requirements.


Guidance on collecting and entering HIC and PIT count data via HDX is available for download from the PIT and HIC Guides, Tools, and Webinars page on the HUD Exchange website. Also see:


If you have any questions about the HIC or PIT count data submissions process, including issues with submitting the data in HDX 1.0, please visit the Ask A Question (AAQ) portal.

To submit a question to the HDX AAQ portal, select “HDX Homelessness Data Exchange (including AHAR, HIC, LSA, PDX, PIT, Stella, Sys PM)” from the “My question is related to” dropdown list on Step 2 of the question submission.
