  1. Phase II of the Chronic Homelessness Initiative will rely exclusively on the Housing Inventory Count (HIC) as its data source. This is a marked contrast to the Phase I reports, which used data collected through PSH inventory working groups with a variety of stakeholders in the county, aimed at improving the data reported in the HIC. That behind-the-scenes work is still underway, but for purposes of ensuring that this analysis is consistent with federally reported data, the research team has decided to use the HIC.
  2. The 2009 HEARTH Act amendment to the McKinney-Vento Act required communities across the country to create a coordinated entry system to align the homeless service system in each community. The requirements were formally defined in the Notice Establishing Additional Requirements for a Continuum of Care Centralized or Coordinated Access System, published by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in January 2017.
  3. It is possible that additional types could be identified if data were collected on additional clients, at a different point of time, or from different providers.
