AHAR Annual Homeless Assessment Report
The Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) is a report to the U.S. Congress on the extent and nature of homelessness in America. The report is prepared HUD and provides nationwide estimates of homelessness, including information about the demographic characteristics of homeless persons, service use patterns, and the capacity to house homeless persons. The report is based primarily on Homeless Management Information Systems (HMIS) data about persons who experience homelessness during a 12-month period.
HUD designed the CoC Check-up to help Continuums determine the degree to which they are prepared for the implementation of the Continuum of Care Program and other HEARTH programs. The Check-up includes a self-administered online survey of major stakeholders, a process to review existing local data on homelessness, the development of a "HEARTH-readiness" rating, and a community plan to address HEARTH "readiness" issues. A Continuum cannot request HUD Technical Assistance without having completed the Continuum of Care Check-up.
The CoC Dashboard provides an overview of a CoC’s award amount, projects, housing inventory, and households served. Dashboards are published annually.
