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.
