Homelessness by the Numbers

National Low Income Housing Coalition
2021 Out of Reach Report

AL-503 2021 Point-in-Time Count
(For more detail and previous years'
data, please click here.)

Out of Reach documents the significant gap between renters’ wages and the cost of rental housing across the United States.

Required by HUD, the Point-in-Time (PIT) count is a count of sheltered and unsheltered people experiencing homelessness on a single night in January. Each count is planned, coordinated, and carried out locally.
