Homelessness Pulse Report: First Quarter 2011
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has released the Homelessness Pulse Report: First Quarter, 2011, which presents quarterly trends of homelessness data from a number of communities. The major findings show that sheltered homelessness increased in 75 percent of the Continuum of Cares (CoCs) included in the report, but that the newly sheltered homeless population decreased in 55 percent of the CoCs. The report presents data at quarterly intervals ending with January, 2011. The data were collected from 23 CoCs representing 361 counties and 422 cities.
The Homelessness Pulse Report is HUD's attempt to disseminate data more frequently than the Annual Homeless Assessment Report and to monitor progress against the Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness.
