CoC Programs

As the Collaborative Applicant for the Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC), All Chicago administers our city’s annual evaluation and application process for US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) CoC funding.

Housing Inventory Count & Point-In-Time Count

Each year, Chicago completes a Housing Inventory Count (HIC) to count the number of beds and units available for people experiencing homelessness. Chicago also completes a Point-in-Time (PIT) Count each year to count the number of people experiencing homelessness in shelters and on the street. Here are some highlights from the 2020 HIC and highlights from the 2020 PIT.
